AUTOMATED VENDOR (DO NOT SEND PO TO TIPS)
EMAIL PURCHASE ORDER TO: tdiviney@beofficesupply.com
PO MUST REFERENCE TIPS CONTRACT NUMBER

Notice:
Many Vendors utilize specific warranties, subscription agreements, license agreements, EULA’s, etc. (“Supplemental Agreements”) when you purchase specific goods or services from that Vendor.  Since the Supplemental Agreements do not necessarily apply to every Member, every jurisdiction, or every purchase, TIPS does NOT now negotiate the terms of those agreements on Members’ behalf.  If you are required to sign such a supplementary agreement by the TIPS Vendor, TIPS strongly encourages Members not to proceed with a purchase until they have carefully reviewed and negotiated all applicable Supplemental Agreements.  TIPS recommends you work with your entity’s legal counsel to ensure compliance with the legal requirements of your entity and your jurisdiction.

As of February 2016, TIPS cannot guarantee compliance with USDA Child Nutrition Funding through state agencies , such as the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) and their regulations ARM section 17. TDA is the pass through agency in Texas for child nutrition funds to schools. The regulations require that specific quantities and detailed descriptions of goods and services be part of the solicitation. Because TIPS and many other cooperatives do not know which school members will use the cooperative’s contract and for what quantities or specific goods or services, we cannot include those details in our solicitations and thus are not usually in compliance with the USDA rules for large purchases. HOWEVER, if you are making small purchases and only quotes are required to comply, TIPS members may request quotes from qualified TIPS suppliers through our website. TIPS can supply all the documentation we have that document our processes for compliance with federal regulations in 2 CFR Part 200, such as soliciting MWBE and disadvantaged businesses, inclusion of the applicable Appendix II clauses, advertising nationally as well as locally and other processes. If you have questions, please submit to TIPS at Legal@tips-usa.com
