Update on shipping services – UPS not accepting new accounts

Effective immediately, UPS is no longer setting up accounts to receive discounted rates through E&I or other government contracts.

Please note this does not impact UPS accounts currently receiving discounts through the E&I contract.

Until further notice, departments in need of an account for parcel package shipments deliveries should use their Purchasing Card to set up an account with FedEx. FedEx accounts will receive discounts under contract 505ENT-O22-SMLPAKGDLV-00.

Please refer to the “FedEx User Guide” on VendorNet for instructions on setting up a new account (located in the documents section at the bottom of the page).
