Campus visits by vendors

General information

The purpose of these guidelines is to assist vendors in understanding and following the procedures of the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Materials Services Department and Pharmacy Services Department.

The Materials Services Department is charged with the centralized purchasing responsibility for the entire health system and is the primary contact point for all vendor representatives of equipment, supplies and services. Hospital personnel are not to meet with vendor representatives except as arranged by the Materials Services Department. Exceptions to this policy will be those specifically coordinated between the director of Materials Services and the director of Pharmacy Services.
