OfficeMax and Office Depot are now one company. OfficeMax is no longer available in BruinBuy Catalog Orders.
If you use BruinBuy, please be aware of this important change. Unlike the OfficeMax catalog that was accessed via Catalog Orders, the Office Depot catalog is accessed via Supplier Site Orders. As a result, you will be shopping directly on a UCLA version of the Office Depot website.
Benefits of Office Depot via Supplier Site Orders (SSO)
- Direct access to Office Depot’s business services website
- Minimize/eliminate price mismatches between PO and Invoice
- Real-time cross-reference of OfficeMax part numbers to Office Depot part numbers
- Real-time inventory check at local warehouse
- Discontinued items are removed immediately
- Date-related items, such as calendars, are available in a timely manner
- Office Depot SSO pricing is synchronized daily with the Office Depot consumer website to ensure that the lowest Office Depot pricing is offered

- How do I close a Purchase Order (PO) if I've cancelled the order?
1. In BruinBuy, go to the My Orders or All Orders page to retrieve the purchase order. Upon retrieval, select the bubble to the left of the “Order Num” and click on the “Cancel” icon to close the order. Please confirm with the vendor that the order has been cancelled before you close the PO.
2. If you have received your cancelled order and plan to keep the item, but you have already closed the PO in BruinBuy, you need to create an A-class PO for the amount of the invoice. Do not create another catalog order to pay for an existing order because this will generate an additional shipment.
3. If you are still having trouble closing the order or you are receiving an error message, please contact the BruinBuy Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org. For accurate/expedient assessments, you must include a screenshot of the error message.
- Do I need to send hard copy invoices to Accounts Payable?
No. All Office Depot invoices are received by UCLA Accounts Payable electronically. The credit invoices/memo are received electronically between 2-5 business days, after the time of your return request.
- I am having trouble generating an A-class Purchase Order. Can I use a Low-Value Purchase Order (N-class) to pay?
No. N-class orders are not to be used to pay for Office Depot invoices nor place orders with. We have a Campus Agreement with Office Depot for creating A-class orders.
If you need help with creating an A-class purchase order or you are receiving an error message, please contact BruinBuy Help Desk at email@example.com. For accurate/expedient assessments, you must include a screenshot of the error message.
