Procurement Services


Our purpose is twofold; one, we provide professional purchasing services to meet the needs of the academic and administrative departments of the university in a timely manner at the lowest possible cost.

Two, we assure university and individual compliance with Kentucky's Model Procurement Code and all other applicable statutes, administrative regulations, state and university policies. We conduct ethical business practices by providing equal treatment to all providers of goods and services. Our clients include students, faculty, staff and thousands of vendors.
