  • Special Purchases - Carpet

    UMMC has entered into an agreement with Collins & Aikman Floor Covering (Tandus Flooring) to furnish carpeting for our buildings. This standardization allows for the purchase of carpeting off the Medassets contract avoiding the need to obtain two quotes as generally required. With the help of our Hospital Designer and other key personnel, we have selected colors that meet our requirements. These samples will be available in Physical Facilities from Jeffrey White.  If you have additional questions, you may contact Purchasing at (601) 984-1350 or Larry Lineberry in Hospital Administration at (601) 984-4100.

    After verbal approval to purchase the carpet:

    • Choose the color and style best suited for your area.
    • Send an email to Judy Miller at Tandus¬†jmiller@tandus.com requesting a quote for carpet.
    • Provide this pertinent information in your email: Department Contact Person, Telephone Number, Department Name, Department Room Number, Style of Carpet (from carpet selections located in Physical Facilities), and the Color of Carpet.
    • Tandus will send an estimator/installer to measure the floor.
    • Tandus will then email the Department Contact Person (as provided in the initial email) a quote for the carpet and installation.
    • The Department Requestor will enter the request in Lawson RQC and attach the quote from Tandus.
    • Once the requisition is approved, Purchasing will issue the purchase order to Tandus.
