The Purchasing staff directs and manages the purchasing function for the university including identifying and addressing areas of concern regarding university spending trends, identifying and addressing potential vendors and providing initial contacts, and managing the purchase requisition/purchase order process. We act as a contact for contract pricing through a number of purchasing consortia to which we belong and administer personal discounts available to staff, faculty, students, families, and/or alumni. We provide representation to the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC) Procurement Committee and oversee the contracts for vending machines and bottled water service on campus.
