The procurement of supplies, equipment and services necessary for the operation of the college has been delegated to the purchasing office as the department authorized to make commitments against college accounts for these purposes.
The director of purchasing and auxiliary services is charged with the responsibility of conducting the purchasing function so as to obtain the greatest benefit for the college, and to do this in accordance with legal and ethical practices of the purchasing profession. The office is organized to serve and facilitate the objectives of the college, to make commitments in a consistent and orderly fashion and to foster a high level of public relations within the college and with college vendors.
All college purchases of more than $5,000 require a minimum of three written quotations. All college purchases of more than $50,000 require a formal bid if no state contract or cooperative contract already exists. Bid opportunities are advertised on eMaryland Marketplace, the electronic commerce system administered by the Maryland Department of General Services.
