Products from MCE

Purchasing from MCE - *****PCI COMPLIANT??

Ordering from MCE can be done online in two ways:

  • Orders using Purchase Orders can be placed through the PO Submission Portal. When uploading required documentation combine all documents into a single PDF file.
  • Orders using P-Cards can be placed through the Credit Card Form. This completed form can be treated as a PO and submitted to the PO portal.

Each written waiver request is reviewed on a one-time case by case basis. If a waiver is approved, the approval is only good for that request, not also for future purchases. Verbal requests will not be accepted.

For furniture purchase from vendors other than MCE, waivers must be obtained prior to placing that order. 

Requests for waivers should be sent to one of:

Todd Deak, Sales Manager


Colden McAllister, Sales Manager



The required information:

  1. Items requested for purchase
  2. Quantity of each product
  3. Competitor name
  4. Competitor price
  5. Photos and specifications of competitor products
  6. Reason for the waiver

A response will be sent within a maximum of 3 business days.

If the waiver is approved, written notification will be provided.

If the waiver is denied you will receive written notification with a quote form attached indicating the MCE product that meets your desired specification.

Purchases using Bond Funds 

Maryland Consolidated Capital Bond Loan (MCBBL) can only be spent through the formal requisition/purchase order process, and will require advance Board of Public Works (BPW) approval. Ref. State Finance and Procurement Article 8-301. Therefore, such funds cannot be spent using any delegated purchasing tool (purchasing card). When MCCBL funds are used on any requisition, the requisition goes to the Department of Procurement & Business Services for processing and obtaining approval from the Board of Public Works.
