  • Procurement

    The Procurement Department supports the university’s educational and administrative needs by assisting faculty and staff in obtaining the best possible products and services available while remaining fiscally responsible. We research and develop sources of supply, offer expert recommendations for products and services, and coordinate their procurement, delivery, and installation. By adhering to best business practices and professional ethics, we enable our co-workers to engage with both changing needs within the university and emerging opportunities in the marketplace.
