Program Overview

SUPRA is a full service contracted supplier that will provide the local sales, delivery and customer support required by University purchasers, and management of the buy-to-pay process through the PantherExpress System. 

SUPRA's strategic alliance partner, Office Depot, Inc., will facilitate access to the extensive product selection required by the University including popular name-brand products and Office Depot brand products.

In addition to the benefits above, the SUPRA/Office Depot strategic alliance partnership advances the University's commitment to Pennsylvania business development, supplier diversity, and economic inclusion.

SUPRA is an African-American owned company headquartered in a Pennsylvania HUBZone.  Important considerations for University researchers in meeting federal and state grant and contract subcontracting plan requirements are that Supra holds numerous certifications as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) from the Pennsylvania Department of General Services, PA-NJ-DE Minority Supplier Development Council and Western Pennsylvania Minority Supplier Development Council, and also meets Tier 1 Small Business Administration (SBA) diversity partnership requirements.
