Marigold Library System is a member of the Calgary and Area Public Purchasing Group (PPG). The PPG is a group of organizations in Calgary and surrounding areas that collectively purchase office supplies on the premise that buying more saves money. The PPG negotiates substantial discounts with multiple vendors which enables Marigold to pass on these savings to its member libraries.
The Purchasing Department at Marigold comparison shops between our vendors to find you the best deals for office supplies, equipment, and furniture.
Several orders from multiple member libraries are combined each week into one large order to meet the free shipping minimums and to receive the discounts offered.
And member library can order at any time and there is no minimum purchase to use the service.
For procurement, Marigold sources two groups of vendors:
- PPG participating vendors who offer discounts and free shipping
- Non-PPG vendors
Vendor proves and discounts change frequently. Marigold's main criteria for vendor selection is based on who is offering the best deal at the time of purchase.
- Email email@example.com with your purchase request.
- You will receive a response including multiple comparable links of the requested item(s) including the total cost with shipping and/or additional charges. *note that prices are subject to frequent changes
- Once you authorize your selection and the price quote is verified, the order will be placed.
- Orders arrive at Marigold HQ and are verified and sent out with the library's next van delivery.
- Marigold's Accounting Administrator will invoice your library for your purchase(s).
