The fair gives suppliers and attendees a chance to discuss how to achieve MIT's supplier-consolidation goal of reducing costs while enhancing the quality of goods and services. The provider fair is a great opportunity to also meet MIT's internal providers.
The event will take place under a tent on McDermott Court (outside Building 54 and Building 18) from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. rain or shine. Refreshments will be available. For more information, please contact Mike McNamara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event is organized by VPF Sourcing, Travel and Procurement Services, a new administrative entity at MIT that is developing new strategic sourcing capabilities for the Institute. The goal is to reduce the total cost of purchased products and services by leveraging MIT's combined purchasing power without compromising quality.
