Important message from the purchasing department

July 10, 2017

Periodically, college employees will receive phone calls from suppliers who are soliciting quick sales. The majority of these calls are scams. Sometimes it’s a truck load of print paper at an unbelievable price or printer cartridges, office supplies, janitorial supplies, or sometimes even energy. The list is endless. These solicitations may even contain “free” offer. Never accept items or commit the college if you receive one of these calls. If possible, don’t provide your name or any GRCC information. Always refer the caller to the Purchasing Department. Thank you for your assistance in protecting college assets.
