Welcome to Purchasing

Purchasing is responsible for competing, contracting, and issuing orders for goods and services that support MSU's mission. Through strategic sourcing, Purchasing reduces costs and improves efficiencies—while complying with university, state, and federal laws, policies, and regulations.

For complex or high-dollar transactions, involving Purchasing early in the process will yield the best results.
