Good marketing strategies are largely dependent upon reaching the right people in an organization. It is therefore important to understand how the organization is structured.

Centralized Purchasing

Most procurement is processed through our centralized Purchasing office. A Contracts and Purchasing Services Directory is available to help you locate the buyer responsible for the product or service you sell. Marketing directly to buyers by U.S. mail, email and fax is customary.

Campus Departments

SJSU campus departments have very limited authority to directly procure low value products and services using our ProCard or Direct Payment process. For details, see Authorized Purchases.
