Procurement Services Statement of Purpose:

Purchasing for higher education can be quite different from the purchasing done for business and industry. Aside from the fact that we are non-profit and tax exempt, the most noticeable difference is probably the broad range of commodities and services required. It is, therefore, important that a good business relationship be established with a great number of suppliers. The University established a central purchasing department in order to make the best use of the institution's purchasing power.

The role of procurement is to assist departments in the acquisition of supplies, equipment and services. Our goal is to effectively increase the financial resources available to departments and to reduce their administrative workload by providing efficient order placement, timely expediting, accurate receiving and the knowledgeable adjustments of claims.

The University is a member of the National Association of Educational Buyers and subscribes to the NAEB Code of Ethics.

Procurement Services is located on the McNichols Campus on the third floor of the Fisher Administration Building (see maps). If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
