The Institute’s online directory of Preferred and Internal suppliers can be searched by commodity or by supplier name. By using Supplier Search, DLCs can find suppliers that will help reduce purchasing costs, optimize product and service quality, and streamline ordering.

When you use MIT’s Preferred Suppliers for your DLC’s purchases there is no need to fill out a Selection of Source Form, no matter the amount of the purchase.

Note: Although Preferred Suppliers provide negotiated pricing for most items within their commodity, some goods and/or services may be excluded and a Selection of Source form would then be required. Review the individual suppliers’ page on VPF Supplier Search for a list of exclusions.
