Ordering Supplies

In order to save money on cost of ordering supplies from small companies that are far away and also who's prices are much more expensive why not have a Staples or Office Max Card. The credit card holder for the office who places the supplies orders would have this card which would have a predetermined balance on the card. the credit card holder would still have to reconcile the statement with receipts, however, it would take less time to obtain supplies especially when there is a last minute rush for supplies because of last minute project. We should be able to go into Staples and/or Office Max and purchase what we need using that card. This would save time and money. This could be done across all agencies.
