To our vendor community:
In a recent flurry of fraudulent activity, some of our vendors have received orders and requests for pricing from people impersonating employees of Washington State University. If you doubt the validity of any purchase order, request for pricing or other document that appears to be from Washington State University, forward it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please take extreme caution when filling any order that appears suspicious, as the University cannot be held responsible for fraudulently placed orders.
The State of Washington has mandated that employees involved in key contracting and procurement functions must complete training in order to continue performing their procurement functions. Training materials can be found here (10/13/2015).
