Contracts and Purchasing Services

Our goal is to acquire the products and services your department needs at a reasonable cost, consistent with your quality and time requirements, and in compliance with state and federal laws and regulations. Specifically, we:

  • Award purchase orders to vendors in accordance with SJSU, CSU and state requirements.
  • Prepare Requests for Information (RFIs), Requests for Quotes (RFQs), Requests for Bids (RFBs) and Requests for Proposals (RFPs) that are sent to vendors.
  • Provide information on and establish leases and financing arrangements.
  • Take action to ensure equal opportunity in SJSU business contracting.
  • Review campus needs and award local agreements.
  • Search out new products on request.
  • Arrange for demonstrations of products.
  • Maintain purchasing records and handle state procurement audits.
  • Support SJSU's recycling and waste reduction programs.
