What types of purchases need to be Green?
EPP requirements pertain to all purchases of products and services made with Federal
- Federal agencies and their contractors
- Large purchases, simplified acquisitions, and micro purchases
- Direct purchases of products and indirect purchases of products obtained
If you are interested in implementing these programs in your area here are a few
easy steps to get you started;
- Contact your local administrator (DMS) or the NIH Service Desk
http://support.nih.gov to request your inbound fax number.
- Once you get your inbound fax number, DMS will be able to establish a public folder/resource
- The last step is to contact the Telecommunications shop on ext. 1600 and you can
request to have all incoming calls to your existing fax number forwarded to the
new inbound fax number.
Anyone can send you a fax and it will be automatically placed in your email inbox.
By clicking on the attached image, you can view the fax on your screen. Or you can
print, store, forward, or fax it to someone else.
If you are interested in using an electronic signature Adobe Acrobat Pro offers
this feature along with many others. The purchase of Adobe software is the responsibility
of each program. DMS does not offer Adobe Acrobat Pro.
Green Procurement is the purchase of products and services with favorable energy
and environmental impacts. FAR 23.403 states, "Agencies shall assure the use of
products containing recovered materials or biobased products to the maximum extent
practicable without jeopardizing the intended use of the product."
SharePoint & Laserfiche
Using SharePoint and Laserfiche can be beneficial to program areas in various ways
but some of the common uses are:
SharePoint provides a central location for assigning and communicating tasks to
team members. You can also organize access to various documents/forms/templates
used by the entire organization from one location. No more emailing documents to
individuals for collaboration. SharePoint offers versioning for documents with easy
access to previous versions. Tasks can be routed automatically to team members through
workflow. Laserfiche offers similar features but also offers the option of electronic
records management. Documents can be stored, routed and archived automatically within
Laserfiche, no need for multiple file cabinets in every office.
If you would like more information on SharePoint or Laserfiche you can contact the
Quality Management Office at QMO@mail.nih.gov.
