OSU provides an online tool so that employees responsible for procuring or contracting for goods and services may complete the necessary Procurement Ethics Statement.

The following are directions for utilizing the OSU Ethics form:

  1. Go to the Procurement Ethics Statement Login page
  2. You will be prompted to log in using your ONID ID
  3. After logging in, thoroughly read the Procurement Ethics Statement
  4. If you have any questions or think you may have a conflict of interest please contact the Chief Procurement Officer
  5. At the bottom of the Procurement Ethics Statement, be sure to fill out the CAPTCHA field then click on the “I agree” button to complete the process

Once submitted, the system sends an automated email receipt of completion to the employee with a copy to the OSU Chief Procurement Officer.
