Purchasing involves the acquisition of equipment, furnishings, supplies, facility improvement, preventive maintenance, contractual services, and leases of space for the University within pre-established budgetary constraints. Some of our functions in the acquisition process are the planning and preparation of specifications, and solicitation, award and administration of formal Invitations to Bid and Requests for Proposal using said specifications as our focus. We assist in submitting informal request for quotes, as well as utilize hundreds of existing contracts from numerous sources to help make the purchases that satisfy the needs of the University.
This site is an effort to provide you, our clients, with easily accessible and timelier information about the purchasing process. All of our Purchasing Staff is dedicated to providing your department with the high quality supplies and equipment you need, when you need them, and at the most economical price. Six purchasing professionals in our office have a combined 135 years of procurement expertise and would be happy to address any suggestions, questions or concerns.
