Message from the Director

We strive to provide service while expediting the procurement of goods and services for the academic, administrative, and research departments of the university. We are also striving to develop new sources of supply so that the university gets the most competitive pricing from our available funding while complying with state laws and regulations. Using our collective knowledge and skills, we hope to provide you with outstanding guidance and service while practicing the values and guiding principles of public procurement adopted by the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing. They are accountability, ethics, impartiality, professionalism, service and transparency.
