Strategic Procurement is a unified shared system-wide service. The organization consists of three functional units: Procurement Operations, Procurement Services, and Strategic Sourcing with staff located throughout the state to ensure an effective campus-based presence. Strategic Procurement is responsible for obtaining maximum value for University expenditures, including expenditures on goods, services, and travel – and to provide effective user-friendly services, systems, and tools to assist University staff in obtaining those goods, services and travel.
