Vendor Resources

It is the policy of the State of Idaho, “To engage in open, competitive acquisitions of property and 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).

We welcome brief "drop in" interviews, however, should more time be required we recommend scheduling appointments with procurement staff by calling our reception area at (208) 282-3111.

Our office hours are regularly 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with summer hours between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

We look forward to seeing you.
