Office Supplies

There are two contract suppliers for office products - OfficeMax and Give Something Back - and both have catalogs hosted on BearBuy.  If the products you want to buy are not available from these suppliers, send your request to orders@law and the Business Services team will locate an appropriate supplier on your behalf.


Consult with Berkeley Law's IS&T group in advance so they can ensure that the items purchased are compatible with our existing technology.


When you install a new cartridge, put the used cartridge in the empty bubble sleeve, close the box, and place it in outgoing campus mail.  Funds generated from the cartridge recycling program benefit the entire campus.


All furniture, appliances, and non-computing equiment purchases require pre-approval by the Chief Financial Officer (fund availability) and Building Services (space availability and access, utilities). Appliances and non-computing equipment include (but are not limited to) such items as office refrigerators, microwaves, water coolers, and space heaters.
