Purchasing Department


Our Role in the College Community

The Purchasing Office is responsible for facilitating the procurement of all goods and services efficiently and effectively, in compliance with the policies and procedures of the City University of New York as well as the State and City of New York.  The Purchasing Office acts prudently, uses good business judgment, and is fiscally responsible for following sound purchasing practices and procedures that provide for open and free competition to the maximum extent practicable.

The Purchasing Department's responsibility is to maintain and ensure compliance with regulatory guidelines and internal control procedures, and conduct business with the highest level of customer service, ethical standards, fairness, and transparency while welcoming qualified, responsible, diverse, and "green" vendors.

The goal of this web page is to better educate our customers  of the established purchasing policies, procedures, regulations, and guidelines, which will assist all departments in planning ahead bearing in mind to involve the Purchasing Department at the beginning of the process and most importantly so that we can all do our part to protect the College from potential liability.
