Vendor Resources

It is the policy of the State of Idaho, “To engage in open, competitive acquisitions of goods and services to maximize the value received by the state with attendant benefits to the citizens.”  The Purchasing Department assists the University with the procurement of all goods and services to ensure that procurement opportunities are fair, open, and lawful.

Purchases are made in accordance with university policies through existing competitively awarded contracts, informal quotations, formal competitive bids, and formal competitive proposals.  Awards are made to the responsive and responsible vendor(s).
