Announcements

New Service Contract
The Office of Purchasing announces that in researching the university’s previous maintenance contract with The Dynamic Difference, which services the printers and typewriters on campus, the office determined CUA's annual agreement for these services has cost the university $3,300. The service history from 2005 to 2006 shows that CUA offices and departments made approximately 21 calls for service. In 2006-2007 there have been 31 service calls, costing the university $2,482.50. The purchasing office has decided to move the current service agreement to a time-and-material contract, which will save the university approximately 33-48 percent. The charges will be as follows:

  • $75 per hour plus parts on personal computers and printers.
  • $75 per hour plus parts on typewriters.

Offices and departments are advised to call The Dynamic Difference themselves and can expect a response time of one to four hours. The method of payment is the CUA Purchase Card, to be presented at the completion of each service call. The contact information is: The Dynamic Difference, 601 Dover Road, #19 Rockville, Md., 20850; 301-251-5490 or 301-251-5640.
