Types of Purchases
The purchasing function consists of business processes related to the acquisition of goods and services for the University. Purchases of equipment, materials, commodities, supplies, and services for the University are made competitively where practicable. Performance, quality, suitability, delivery, and service are factors considered in buying. All purchases are made according to the provisions of the Illinois Procurement Code and the Procurement Rules of the Chief Procurement Officer for Public Institutions of Higher Education and other applicable state and federal regulations.
The campuses have common practices and procedures for purchasing operations, however where differences between campuses occur, these are noted.
