What Rowan Looks for in Vendors & Suppliers:

  • Quality: The service or project taken on by the vendor should meet or exceed the requirements stated by the University. The vendor should display acceptable results, as well as have an understanding of the overall vision of the University and how it relates to the current project.
  • Flexibility: The quality of service is, in large part, dependent on the flexibility of the vendor. Unseen circumstances should be met with professionalism and expertise.
  • Innovation: Emerging technologies and ideas are encouraged. Producing new and creative methods that prove beneficial to the University are sought after.
  • Customer Service: Responses from vendors should not only be timely, but productive. The vendor should have an understanding of what is to be accomplished and be able to provide solutions not just in the present, but also proactive for future obstacles.
