About Us

Purchasing provides the university with centralized purchasing of goods, services and equipment. The staff has significant expertise in these areas and is a resource for procurement information for the community. Purchasing locates competitive sources of quality goods and services as well as negotiates favorable terms, conditions and pricing. Purchasing also arranges for delivery when and where needed, monitors supplier compliance with purchase order contracts and resolves discrepancies.

This webpage is a convenient reference guide to the purchasing process at Salem State University. It briefly summarizes our standard operating procedures governing the purchase of goods and services by university personnel. It lists the names and telephone numbers of the various university personnel involved in purchasing activities. It also outlines the various services available.
