Procurement Services

As part of the Division of Administration & Finance, UNF's Procurement Services works as a service function that supports the University's mission and vision. Housed in Ann & David Hicks Hall and the Central Receiving building (main campus), this staff of thirteen full-time employees provides value-added services in procurement, receipt and delivery of the materials, supplies and services necessary to support the University's programs and activities. In addition to the management staff, Procurement Services is comprised of a sourcing/buying staff and the administrative staff that support their actions. The professionals in Procurement provide research and guidance to affect strategic sourcing as well as managing the end-to-end process of acquiring the goods and services needed by UNF Departments/Units to fulfill their mission for the University. This staff also manages operations of iContracts, the University's central document approval and signature routing system, and administers the University's Procurement Card (P-Card) program. The Central Receiving Staff can frequently be seen all over campus delivering goods shipped to the Central Receiving facility as well as assisting Departments with the return of unsatisfactory/damaged goods.
