Beware of Fraudulent Purchase Orders

January 20, 2016 author: No comments

2016 Update:


SPECIAL NOTICE to those who may receive a “Purchase Order” or “Request for Quotation” for goods and/or services from IIT:

Since July 16, 2014, IIT has been the victim of identity theft with a scammer using a fake IIT “Request for Quotation” or “Purchase Order” document indicating issuance by Frank FioRito.  This is a Fraudulent Action.  The “Request for Quotation” or “Purchase Order” is not issued by IIT or Frank FioRito.  Please take no action on this “Request for Quotation” or “Purchase Order”.

On July 25, 2014, the scammer began to email fake purchase orders.  These purchase orders are NOT LEGITIMATE.  They are NOT issued by IIT and the signature is a forgery.  DO NOT SUPPLY GOODS OR SERVICES IN RESPONSE TO THESE PURCHASE ORDERS.

IIT uses controlled documents for bid solicitations and for issuance of purchase orders.  IIT Purchasing contact information is maintained on the IIT website and is available for verification of IIT Purchasing correspondence.

“When in doubt, check it out.”

How to sell to IIT

October 14, 2014 author: No comments

Many vendors are confused about how to best approach IIT to find opportunities. The difficulty in selling to IIT is related to the very decentralized nature of our purchasing.

Each department is responsible for the management of its annual budget.

Here’s a tip:  Access and locate the link to the “Directories”.  It is on the right hand side at the top of the page.   Click on the link and you are taken to another page that has a link to the IIT Phone Book.  Click on this to search for an individual contact.

To determine what department might be interested in your services, click on Academic Programs/Departmental Websites or Administrative Offices.  These links can help you develop a picture of the buying landscape at IIT.

Good Luck!
