  1. PWR012 Purchasing Representation recommendation - Successful

    The iWG co-chairs, Ximing Cai and Morgan White, identified this recommendation as a small-scale reecommendation that did not require a full iWG assessment.  They submitted it directly to the Director of Purchasing, Brad Henson, and met with him to discuss the need for a Purchasing Office representative to actively participate in the Zero Waste discussions for campus sustainability.

    Mr. Henson agreed to assign Associate Director of Purchasing, Aaron Finder, to the SWATeam.  For further updates, visit the SWATeam page at Purchasing, Waste, and Recycling (PWR) SWATeam.

    Matthew Tomaszewski responded to the iWG Chair, Dr. Ximing Cai, with the following email:

    Good morning, Ximing,
    I have had a couple conversations with Provost Cangellaris about this recommendation.  We will include it for consideration as part of our broader discussion of the campus budget.  As you know, budget reform has implications for space and utilities use, so this is a timely submission.  

    Thank you,
    Matthew
