The mission of the Procurement Services Office is to support the purpose and goals of the university in its pursuit of providing educational opportunities to its diverse student population -- by procuring quality goods and services at competitive prices for all university customers. Procurement personnel strive to achieve these goals by providing good customer service in a timely manner.
Procurement personnel are morally, ethically, and legally obligated to purchase all materials and services at the lowest possible price while still considering quality, service and delivery in accordance with all laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It is extremely important to note that no one other than a Kutztown University Procurement Agent is authorized to commit the university to a purchase of a commodity or a service. Any university faculty or staff member ordering something either verbally or by signing an agreement, without the proper authorization, may be held personally liable for the cost of the service.
The Procurement Services Office is part of the Business & Financial Services Office and the Division of Administration and Finance at Kutztown University.
