C&T vendor contacts | Technical and Quality Assurance
The Supplier Support division provides technical and quality assurance support to all of C&T's buying teams. However, the product lines supported by the technical teams do not always align with the individual buying teams. Therefore, the supplier support teams are numbered in lieu of having names that correspond to buying team names.
The teams below are made up of experts in the specifications, patterns, product testing/evaluation, and quality assurance of their respective product lines. While technical questions can be answered by the individuals at the specified numbers, vendors are reminded to address questions specific to open solicitations or current contracts to their cognizant buyer or contracting officer.
Supplier Support division chief: 215-737-3191.
