Contracts and Purchasing
The Contracts and Purchasing Department under the division of Administration and Finance is responsible for providing and directing University faculty and staff to sources capable of providing a continuous supply of goods and services necessary to fulfill their responsibilities in support of the mission of the University. Therefore, the Contracts and Purchasing Department works closely with our vendors to ensure that the quality of goods and service they provide are acceptable and at a fair price.
