The Director of Purchasing is a resource to the campus community for the strategic procurement of goods and services at the best value (highest quality/service at the lowest price) consistent with College requirements and federal guidelines.

This is accomplished by leveraging the College’s buying power through Consortia memberships, focusing on supplier management, contract negotiation, adopting new technologies and promoting best practices throughout the procurement process. 

The director strives to assist the campus community in establishing service level requirements; identifying options for multiple sources; negotiating pricing and terms and conditions; reviewing supplier proposals and quotations as well as resolving supplier related issues.
