For any questions relating to categories please contact Procurement Services

Advertising and Marketing

Advertising and Marketing services must go through Allen & Gerritson, Brandeis University’s agency of record.  This includes external advertising buys, paid search (including Google Ad Words) and other services.  Allen & Gerritson has extensive experience working in multiple-client environments in higher education and will be able to both optimize our media purchases and eliminate scenarios when we are competing internally. 

All orders for Advertising, Marketing and Print, regardless of price, must be submitted through MarketPlace+. If you do not have a MarketPlace+ account and need one, please fill out the Procurement Systems Access Form.
