Purchasing Department Mission Statement

The mission of the Purchasing Department is to facilitate best practices and achieve economies of scale in the procurement of goods and services necessary for the effective and efficient operation of the College and to ensure that such goods and services represents best value, quality service, and timely delivery and that all funding sources for such goods and services are expended within the regulations and guidelines mandated by the State and City of New York, and The City University of New York.

It is the responsibility of the Purchasing Department to maintain and ensure compliance with regulatory guidelines and internal control procedures, to 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 in the BEGINNING of the process and most importantly, so that we can all do our part to protect the College from potential liability.
