The Purchasing Department is responsible for accurately and efficiently centralizing all purchasing (procurement) and vendor related services for Grambling State University, in accordance with university, state and federal laws and regulations.
The key to completing the purchasing process in a timely manner requires serious PLANNING. It is very important that each requisitioning department plan in advance, taking into consideration when items being requisitioned are needed; when a certain event or function is to be held, and the amount of time required to properly process a purchase requisition, from beginning to end.
After a purchase requisition has been received in the Purchasing Department, it is submitted to the Director for review and assigned to a buyer. The buyer determines, based on the dollar amount of the purchase requisition, the number of quotes required, in accordance with the Louisiana Procurement Code.
