Johnson County Community College places a high priority on integrating environmental awareness and responsibility into the daily life of the institution. The College recognizes the positive impact it can make on the environment through its procurement decisions. 

In accordance with the College’s purchasing policies and procedures, and in support of the College’s signing of the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment, it is the intent of the College to seek and utilize, to the fullest extent possible, environmentally friendly or “green” products, practices, services and suppliers, whenever they perform satisfactorily and can be acquired at similar total value (both cost and quality considered). In support of this effort, the College’s Procurement Services department will:

  • In its commitment to provide exceptional services, lead the effort by example and utilize electronic bidding practices to assist in the reduction of College resources used in the procurement process;
  • Share the responsibility with all College employees of identifying new and environmentally friendly products and services, using criteria established by widely recognized authorities (eco-labels such as Energy Star, EPEAT, Green Seal, Fair Trade, etc.), with the goal to eliminate carcinogens, mutagens and teratogens;
  • Integrate the expanded use of products and services that contain the maximum level of post-consumer reusable or recyclable waste or recyclable content (bio-based products), without significantly affecting the intended use of the product or service (e.g., paper products, cups, etc.);
  • In an effort to preserve natural resources, strive to procure energy efficient equipment and water saving products, and seek alternative energy sources from reliable, certified alternative energy suppliers;
  • Purchase from suppliers who provide environmentally friendly products/services or from suppliers who are environmentally sensitive in their daily operations;
  • When feasible, work with suppliers in the areas of reduction/reuse/take-back of packaging materials, identify alternative methods of delivery, and specify take-back of obsolete products in solicitations;
  • Take cost/benefit analysis into consideration to arrive at the correct sourcing decision — one that remains economically practical, reflects effective purchasing practices, considers total life cycle analysis and satisfies the requirements of the user department; and
  • Routinely evaluate replacement needs and waste management practices (recycling); encourage reuse of items within the College community; practice source reduction; manage surplus effectively; and provide consistent and relevant information and training for all staff.

Nothing in these guidelines shall be construed as requiring Procurement Services or any College department to procure products that do not perform adequately for their intended use or are not available at a reasonable price in a reasonable period of time.

JCCC’s Standard Terms & Conditions are included in every solicitation.

Please review these with your company’s submittal to ensure that you can adhere to the requirements being requested.
