Procurement is dedicated to helping OSU Colleges, Departments and Business Centers in meeting their procurement and contracting needs.

We manage the competitive processes and establishment of contracts and purchases that provide cost-effective procurement and facilitate supplier relationships that are mutually beneficial to the University and Contractors, focusing on finding effective procurement solutions.

We are committed to being a leader in supplier diversity by providing the greatest possible procurement and contracting opportunities through outreach and education to both suppliers and the OSU community. Our goal is to create effective business solutions for OSU through opportunities with diverse suppliers.


If you missed us during Training Days, we have you covered. Procurement is offering additional training sessions for Procurement Standards and Resources, as well as new topics of Informal Procurement and Federal Purchases under Uniform Guidance, the weeks of November 11 and 18.
