Ontario’s Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS), Supply Chain Ontario (SCO) and Ontario Shared Services (OSS), recently made changes to their Vendor of Record (VOR) arrangement for Supply, Delivery and Installation of Office Seating and Furniture. The VOR expired on July 31, 2020 and has been paused for a period of nine months.
In the interim, MGCS has recommended OECM’s Office Space Furniture and Related Services Agreements as an alternative option for organizations requiring seating and furniture goods and/or services during this time. Click here to read this announcement.
Customers now have access to even more choice of office space furniture products and related services, with the addition of new OEMs to the agreements with supplier partners, Patrick Cassidy and Associates Inc., and Staples Business Advantage, as well as, newly expanded zones for Manleys (1983) Ltd.
New OEMs and products were also added to the Educational Furniture and Related Services Agreements with Supplier Partners, Patrick Cassidy and Associates Inc. and Wintergreen Learning Materials.
