Staples Strategic Account Leader
The common ESM Campus Marketplace site features special contracting prices for frequently used suppliers. The pricing often represents savings of 17-29% for many suppliers you currently use.
This site is brought to you by ten CSU Campuses acting as a partnership. The team has worked together to provide a shopping site, catalog suppliers, and great contract pricing. This is an exciting new venture and we hope it provides the catalogs and suppliers you need.
Please let us know your comments and suggestions for future catalog suppliers. You may contact the program administrator below.
The purchasing vehicle for the ESM Campus Marketplace is the ProCard. If you do not have a ProCard and would like to take advantage of the negotiated prices please submit a ProCard Application (PDF) to email@example.com.
