Procurement Services


The Purchasing Department has officially changed its name to Procurement Services

The legacy term "purchasing" denotes a reactive environment with more tactical and transaction functions and heavy emphasis on process and compliance. "Procurement" is a broader term that has a proactive and strategic focus for achieving best value/dollar savings, process efficiency, innovation and customer service. You will gradually notice the name change on our web site, signage, bid solicitations and other documents.
