​This page provides specific information on How-To-Order from some of our preferred suppliers. The suppliers offer the best overall cost to the College and supports a strategic partnership. Departments are strongly encouraged to support strategic suppliers as part of a district strategy to leverage our full buying power.
Each supplier has a different process on ordering supplies and/or services; please click on the PDF link for each commodity to view their ordering process.
The Purchasing Department takes advantage of competitively bid contracts available through state and other college community buying cooperatives to save the College time, money and resources. The complete list of contracted suppliers is available on our Contract Suppliers page. For additional information about the suppliers, their products and services, please contact the Purchasing Department at (310) 434-4304 or email us at purchasing@smc.edu.
