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.
Every Marigold member library is automatically a member of the Purchasing Program! There is no registration required, no fees to participate, and no obligation to use the service.
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:
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.
