Ms. Griffin, Purchasing Agent for the city of Cambridge, spoke of job specs being provided on-line. She noted that as it relates to the bidding process for the city, the bid cannot be paperless.
Councillor vanBeuzekom stated that she had recently followed the bid process for the purchase of paper in order to gain greater insight into the process. She wondered why two copies of the bid needed to be submitted to the Purchasing Department. Ms. Griffin noted that this is their procedure. One copy is for the Purchasing Department, while the second copy of the bid is provided to the "requesting department" so that that department can review aspects of the bid as it relates to their needs. Ms. Griffin noted that contracts are e-mailed which is paperless, but noted that original signatures are required on final contracts submitted and retained by the Purchasing Department. She noted that the state law currently requires the Purchasing Department to maintain the original document.
...
Ms. Griffin stated that she would have to conduct more research on this matter. She noted that the standard in the city is 30% recycled content. She noted that a higher recycled content can be included in the bid but that there would need to be a trial period in advance to confirm that a higher content paper works appropriately for all that need to use it. Councillor vanBeuzekom stated that she only uses 100% post consumer and does not have any problems with it. Ms. Griffin also noted that this product would be more costly.
Councillor vanBeuzekom then asked if the city considered the purchase of vehicles fueled with biodiesel as part of its green purchasing policies. Ms. Griffin stated that representatives of the city had recently attended a forum for fuel-efficient vehicles and was looking at all the pros and cons of various vehicles, including diesel. She further noted that the price of biodiesel fuel is extremely high when compared to gasoline used in traditional engine vehicles. Calculations figuring in the long-term cost of fuel needs to be weighed together with the cost of the vehicle. She noted that the towns of Cambridge, Newton, Brookline, and Lexington buy fuel together cooperatively. This collective purchasing power has benefited the city of Cambridge with a reduced cost for vehicle fuel.
...
Ms. Griffin stated that each department makes their own purchases.
...
As it relates to electronics, Ms. Griffin stated that all electronics are purchased via state contract. She noted that the state has an EPP policy and all of the vendors that supply electronics via the state contract have to comply with this policy.
