Amazon Business Information
Purchase of any item should always begin with existing, negotiated purchasing contracts established by Procurement and Property Management. If a particular item is not blocked on Amazon, it does not always mean that it is eligible for purchase on Amazon per RPS' purchasing policies. After you submit your order on Amazon, all orders are reviewed by our office before the order is finally placed. Contact our office at 804-780-6110 for more information.

How Do I Get an Amazon Business Account?
If you need a new Amazon Business account, or if you need to make changes to your existing Amazon Business account (add a new delivery address, obtain purchasing ability for another group, etc.), please contact Jodi Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that all items that require asset-tags MUST be shipped to the Vatex Warehouse and a Fixed Asset Form must be completed. If your order contains an item that requires an asset tag, and the delivery address is not listed as Vatex, the entire order will be cancelled for re-entry with an updated delivery address. We cannot change delivery addresses, item selections or quantities, etc. after you have submitted your Amazon order for approval.
