- A representative from Knoll and one of our certified Knoll dealers will contact your agency to discuss your space planning and furniture needs.
- After determining the right solution for your agency, the Knoll dealership will provide you with a furniture quote based on our OMNIA Partners pricing. After receiving a formal proposal from a Knoll dealer, the purchase order needs to reference the Fairfax County, VA contract # 4400003404, available through OMNIA Partners. Specific purchase order requirements will be provided by your dealer and will include a request that you enclose a Tax Exempt certificate if not paying tax.
If my agency already has an account with Knoll Inc. do I need to set up a new account?
No. Contact your Knoll Sales Representative to have the program linked to your existing account. You may also contact the Knoll OMNIA Partners National Program Manager via email at email@example.com
Can private universities order using OMNIA Partners?
YES! Both public and private schools (K-12 and higher education) are eligible.
Does the competitive pricing apply, regardless of quantity?
Using the program assures an agency they are getting a very competitive price on any size order. There are no costs, minimum quantity requirements or spend limits associated with using the contract, available through OMNIA Partners. Our best pricing only is available through OMNIA Partners, 52-69% discount by product category.
How does it save time and resources?
The key value for the agency is resource savings. On average, OMNIA Partners participating agencies will save 5% over traditional procurement practices. Most agencies today are spread too thin. Agencies have downsized administrative departments, and open purchasing and maintenance positions are left unfilled. The program provides a mechanism to save the time and costs associated with obtaining quotes or preparing solicitations. The time savings allow the department to accomplish its work tasks more efficiently with the personnel on hand.
Which products are available on the OMNIA Partners program?
All Knoll products are included.
Can I submit one purchase order for both Knoll and non-Knoll items?
YES! There is an option available allowing clients to place orders directly with the Knoll dealer. In addition, this option may help agencies meet "buy local" or "small business procurement" goals. Contact your Knoll representative for additional information.
Who sends the order to Knoll?
Whether the client purchase order is addressed to Knoll or to the Knoll dealer, the client purchase order should be sent to the Knoll dealer so that they can review it for accuracy. The Knoll dealer will then forward the agency purchase order to Knoll electronically along with a full bill of materials.
