Procurement Services

The mission of Procurement Services is to provide for the acquisition of equipment, supplies, and services required for the operation of the university with the objective that the items will be available at the proper time, location, quality, and price consistent with the needs of the requester.

Procurement Services personnel are morally and legally obligated to seek and purchase all materials and services at the lowest possible price in conjunction with the service, quality, and delivery expected. Procurement Services personnel are committed to providing the best possible service in the most efficient manner possible. Procurement Services is here to serve our university customers.
