Purchasing

The Purchasing department is responsible for the purchase and payment of all goods and services to the campus community. It advises internal departments on regulations mandated by the State of Minnesota, Minnesota State and St. Cloud State Purchasing Policies and Procedures.

The department is the central point for the bidding of major purchases. Contracts such as professional/technical, leases, construction, joint powers and inter agency agreements are also executed by this department.

It is the intent of the Purchasing Department at St. Cloud State University to provide the campus community with responsible purchasing. This includes timely purchases of goods and services at the lowest possible cost with consideration to quality, quantity and delivery based on market conditions. This will be accomplished as per laws, rules and regulations of the State of Minnesota, Minnesota State and St. Cloud State University.
