Purchasing Services


The Department of Purchasing Services' mission is to provide direct support to the educational mission of the University by assisting departments in obtaining products and services of a high quality, at the lowest cost, and in the time needed. Purchasing administers relative contracts and leases; manages assets from acquisition through disposal and achieves this mission by processing orders, generating agreements and leases along with tracking equipment in an efficient manner and within the constraints of state purchasing requirements, UNCW policies, and the highest ethical standards. Meeting the needs of the University community is the focus of Purchasing Services' efforts.
