Purchasing Policies

To better serve the campus community, the College has established a series of cost saving policies and procedures for the most commonly purchased goods and services.  

The object of these policies is to:

  • Competitively bid more goods and services to achieve the best price and quality of service
  • To reduce the number of vendors used to purchase the same products
  • To reduce the number of check requisitions that are processed and the number of checks written
  • To reduce late fees, missed cash discounts, and sales tax payments
  • To increase the use of purchasing consortiums to take advantage of volume discounts
  • To establish clear guidelines and uniform purchasing practices throughout the campus community.

Please see the Procedures section on Requesting a Purchase Order

Purchasing: Copiers

The College recognizes the need for copier/printer availability within key working areas and is committed to ensuring that these devices are accessible and networked.  All networked copiers are purchased or leased centrally through the Business Office in coordination with Information Services.  Departmental requests for new copiers or replacement of existing copiers must begin with Information Services.

Keywords: copier, photocopier, Canon, Ricoh, IKON
