The goal of the Purchasing Department is to procure the most appropriate materials, supplies, equipment, and services at the lowest available price--consistent with quality requirements and delivery needs--to fulfill the college's mission in education and research with a commitment to academic excellence and provision of equal access and opportunity to students, faculty, and staff from all ethnic and racial groups from both sexes. The practice of competitive solicitation ensures participation of the largest group of vendors and guards against favoritism, improvidence, and fraud.
The Purchasing Department ensures compliance with state laws and regulations governing purchasing, ensures cost controls in obtaining reasonable prices, and maintains internal control procedures and maintenance of purchase orders and contracts.
The primary mission of the Queens College Purchasing Office
is to ethically and efficiently procure and receive quality goods and services
at the best prices and value in compliance with the policies, procedures and
guidelines of The City University of New York and the State of New York. We are
committed to providing outstanding customer service as well as opportunities to
qualified and responsible vendors.
NB: Only The Purchasing Office can obligate the College on
matters of procurement through the issuance of duly authorized Purchase Orders
