Mission of the Purchasing Department

The primary function of the Purchasing Department is the procurement of goods, materials and services in a timely manner as required by the University to fulfill its mission in education, research, economic, and cultural/social development. Through effective communication, both internal and external, the Purchasing Department strives to provide for the varied needs of the campus community while observing the laws and regulations of the New York State Office of the State Comptroller , the New York State Office of General Services, and the State University of New York. This involves a balance between efficient and timely service to our customers and providing an environment of good sound business controls to protect the assets of Fredonia The State University of New York. Procurement is accomplished with the generation of purchase orders, campus ordering or the use of the state issued procurement card.
