Hire.Buy.Live. Newark

NJIT has deep roots in the City of Newark dating back to the late 1800’s and the Industrial Age.  NJIT has been an anchor in the City of Newark and its development over the decades.

It is with great enthusiasm that we partner with the City of Newark, Newark Businesses, Rutgers and the local hospitals to promote the “Hire.Buy.Live.Newark” endeavor.

Office of Procurement Sevices' role in the “Buy” component of this initiative is to support the growth of local businesses and match them to our end user needs.  A listing of Newark based businesses is available for your use at: (NJIT Vendors) these businesses are available for use in Highlander eMerchant. You can also search for Newark based suppliers in Highlander eMerchant by selecting the “NWK” Tag under suppliers.

Your role is to consider using these Newark businesses, when appropriate and to reach out to us if you have a local business that you would like to use that is not already in Highlander eMerchant.
