Department of Procurement and Strategic Sourcing


The University of Maryland is committed to purchasing energy efficient and environmentally friendly products. Try using these tools to identify such products:


University of Maryland Policy and Procedures for Environmentally Preferable Procurement


Energy-Star : Find energy efficient products via this website jointly sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency.

E-Peat : EPEAT is a system to help purchasers in the public and private sectors evaluate, compare and select desktop computers, notebooks and monitors based on their environmental attributes. EPEAT also provides a clear and consistent set of performance criteria for the design of products, and provides an opportunity for manufacturers to secure market recognition for efforts to reduce the environmental impact of its product


Once you’ve identified a product, please check our Vendor Contracts to determine if the desired item is available for you to place your own order using the p-card or ELF Vendor Contract Release. If the item is not available on one of our contracts, please send your requisition to Procurement and Strategic Sourcing so that we can procure the item for you.
