In an effort to increase the participation of local businesses in The College of New Jersey’s procurement of goods and services, the College is hosting an Information Session and Breakfast at which owners of Trenton- and Ewing-based small businesses can gain a better understanding of TCNJ’s purchasing procedures. The event will take place on March 21, from 8 to 11 a.m., in room 212 of the Education Building.
Mark Mehler, TCNJ’s director of purchasing, finance, and business services, will be on hand to explain the College’s business policies and provide business owners with valuable insight on doing business with TCNJ. Following Mehler’s presentation, local business owners will have the opportunity to meet with Debbie Taylor, TCNJ’s interior designer, and representatives from the College’s facilities’ shops to discuss potential business opportunities.
Local vendors offering goods or services relating to electricity, plumbing, heating and air, landscape and grounds, painting, cleaning, furniture, carpet, cabinetry, moving, or signage are encouraged to bring product portfolios to share with TCNJ’s purchasing representatives.
The Purchasing Information Session and Breakfast is being held in coordination with TCNJ’s Small Business Development Center and the Mid Jersey Chamber of Commerce. Attendees are asked to park in lots 2A, 4, 5, or 6.
