A brief description of programs and strategies institution has implemented to ensure that the guidelines are followed, including a brief description of instances when the guidelines have changed purchasing behavior, if applicable:

Loyola University is committed to and continually strengthens its sustainability efforts with campus partners. Buyers and users should utilize suppliers and service providers that make use of, to practicable extent, materials and services that support the University’s environmental mission and goals of reducing, reusing, and recycling. The Purchasing Department leverages current supplier relationships to raise awareness of the need to reduce our environmental impact and maximize resource efficiency.

Moreover, the Terms and Conditions of Contract found in each Pre-Qualified Supplier Agreement speaks to the required performance of supplier personnel, the rules and regulations that must be followed when on University premises, the general Pre-Qualified Supplier General Terms and Conditions, and the University’s Pre-Qualified Supplier General Terms and Conditions for Purchases. In addition, the Pre-Qualified Suppliers agrees to attend quarterly contract review meetings where reports on performance for the previous quarter are presented and problems and resolutions are discussed.
