SmartMart in iProcurement provides access to products available from select suppliers with whom Stanford has negotiated pricing agreements. Not all supplier products are available in SmartMart.

When to Use SmartMart

Prior to searching for supplier products in SmartMart, we recommend that you first search for products using Amazon Business. Stanford's Amazon Business account offers the familiar Amazon open-market user experience that personal shoppers have enjoyed for years—plus many business-specific benefits.
