We appreciate the spirit of friendship and goodwill in which business gifts are offered; however, it is contrary to BCIT's policy [PDF] or employees to directly or indirectly accept any gifts, entertainment, or favour from a supplier. We prefer that incentives be expressed in terms of quality, service, and price in your quotations. Advertising items, sales promotions, or business lunches are permitted on a limited, reciprocal basis. Please assist us in this policy.
The Purchasing Department is the primary contact between BCIT and its suppliers. Purchasing will initiate, conduct and conclude all negotiations affecting purchases, pricing, terms and delivery.
Intermediate negotiations, communications ad interviews may be conducted between suppliers and other personnel, but Purchasing is solely authorized to commit any expenditure of funds or contractual commitments.
