JHU creates comparison dashboard for autoclave, sterilizer service calls

Johns Hopkins Purchasing Services has created a comparison dashboard for university employees who make service calls for autoclaves and sterilizers, to make sure they are getting the best costumer service and pricing. The dashboard can be downloaded on the university finance website.

The dashboard includes a list of vendors, their capabilities, pricing, and other pertinent information, and it also includes estimates of time required for service calls. The final pricing and service time for individual pieces of equipment will depend on its condition and the specific repair service.

Purchasing Services developed the dashboard as part of the multiyear Administrative Excellence Initiative, designed to improve administrative service levels, curb spending growth, and allow the university to devote more resources to its core research, education, and service missions.

Purchasing Services is also seeking feedback about vendors who have serviced autoclaves and sterilizers through a survey, online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Z2QTYBW.
