How does Purchasing relate to other departments?
The Purchasing Process is essential to the financial wellness of the University.
The Purchasing Department provides the University Community with vital information about vendors, products, merchandise, and services.
We promote fair bidding and purchasing practices, thus maximizing buying power.
The Purchasing Department can provide the client with choices, (multiple resources). Multiple resources provide a safety factor, not present when only one vendor is providing the product or service. A well informed client is more likely to make the better choice.
The Purchasing Process is most effective and efficient when departmental (clients) provide Procurement with product and/or service specifications or guidelines.
