College and University Business Administration ‒ Procurement Chapter

CUBA - Procurement Chapter CoverIn most cases, purchasing is the second largest expenditure on campus after personnel - so how can chief business officers take a more strategic and collaborative approach to create savings? Especially since the procurement process does not follow a "one-size-fits-all" model. The process is unique for many reasons: The marketplace responds differently to higher education; institutional needs change in response to research or new programs; and higher education competes for faculty, students, and funding.

Also, many variables that affect the Procurement department's responsibilities and structure, including private vs. public institution, small vs large research, the institution's internal administrative organization, autonomy-or a lack of involvement- from state government, and financial support.

Written by Nancy Brooks, Iowa State University and Richard Taylor, from University of California Berkeley and San Francisco, in conjunction with the National Association of Educational Procurement, learn how to address some of these variables as well as best practices in this complimentary chapter of College and University Business Administration.
