The department is responsible for all procedures involving contract bidding, vendor selection, acquisition of equipment, furnishings, supplies, minor construction, preventive maintenance services, contractual services, and lease of space for the University within pre-established budgetary constraints. Purchasing also includes: preparing budget estimates, preparing bid specifications, initiating formal quotations, processing proposals and bids, conducting public bid openings, evaluating and awarding bids, and administrating contracts until final completion or termination.
