Procurement and Strategic Sourcing (PASS) has been working to find ways to streamline the process for handling New Hire Relocations, to better service the needs of the person(s) moving. As a result of our sourcing efforts, we are pleased to announce that the University has entered into a Strategic Supplier Relationship with Corrigan Moving Systems, an agent for United Van Lines.
Relocating to a new area can be a challenging and stressful experience. To address all new hire relocation concerns, the department and new hire will need expert information and proper planning to make the move smooth and satisfying. Corrigan has a broad and diverse nationwide network of relocation specialists that understand the needs of relocating families, offices and labs. Corrigan has special discounts with United Van Lines and will extend them to the new hire when relocating their household goods and laboratories. A special rate has been established for WSU faculty and staff to make their move both cost effective and well planned. Corrigan will provide pre-move information, cost estimates and scheduling assistance at no cost or obligation.
Undoubtedly, this is a time of excitement as well as uncertainty for our new hires as they plan for their many upcoming changes. In order to make their transition to our area easier, and to take advantage of Corrigan’s services, contact Terri Breit at 800-243-9502 or by email at email@example.com. Wayne State University Procurement & Strategic Sourcing is here to help as well, Kimberly Tomaszewski, Senior Buyer will work with the department and –the new hire to coordinate with Corrigan Moving Systems to get a binding quote and a schedule to move.
Once Corrigan has provided a quote, the department should create a requisition in Banner and submit to PASS for approval and processing in the normal manner. There is no need for a three quote competitive bid as was done in the past. The updated APPM Section 126.96.36.199 can be viewed on the Procurement & Strategic Sourcing website.
If you have questions or require assistance contacting Corrigan, please contact Kimberly Tomaszewski, Senior Buyer at (313) 577-3757 or firstname.lastname@example.org. .
