UM System-Wide Purchasing

When it is in the University’s best interest, contracts will be established for use by all or several campuses. Procurement Services shall maintain information on these contracts and make them available to user departments. Due diligence will be exercised to ensure these contracts are utilized and that the University does not commit a breach of contracts. The CPO or designee will work with Strategic Sourcing to determine commodities suitable for system-wide contracts.
