The Purchasing Office's role is to ensure that the University obtains products and services that meet customer needs and are acquired at competitive pricing. Purchasing Specialists with experience and expertise in procuring a wide range of products and services are ready to assist you. They offer a ready resource to locate the best available product or service and can recommend vendors with the most competitive pricing and delivery.
