The Procurement Department supports the campus community by acquiring goods and services through a centralized purchasing, receiving and vendor payment system. The Procurement Department is responsible for acquiring quality goods and services at the right price, the right time and from the right source(s) consistent with applicable laws, regulations and college policy. Purchases made on behalf of the college require a purchase order number, assigned by the Procurement Department.

How to Do Business With the College

Vendors wishing to do business with the college should initially contact the Procurement Department. The buyer will obtain general information regarding your firm and may request you send a general letter of introduction listing your firm's products and services. The letter of interest will be maintained in our vendor files for possible future business opportunities. When appropriate, procurement staff will direct suppliers to other college department staff. This policy has been developed to ensure equitable treatment of all suppliers and to promote efficient fulfillment of departmental needs.

Contracts for buildings, building improvements, equipment or supplies that will cost $25,000 or more are posted on eMaryland Marketplace. Click here to register and review bids.
