Tips on ways to improve your department’s EPP program.
- Implement a refillable pen policy. Only purchase refillable pens for your office and ensure that only pen refills are primarily purchased for your office.
- Use the “Green Book” from Office Depot when purchasing office supplies.
- Review your contract specifications and see if there are EPP options to test out. Ensure that products meet working standards. Contact GSD Procurement Services with any bid specification changes.
- Implement the use of an EPP subtask code to track purchases. Click here for a sample memo to your Department's purchasing staff.
- Track EPP purchases as you make payments using direct expenditures, purchasing cards, and petty cash. See here for a sample.
