Purchasing and Contracts

Welcome to the Purchasing and Contracts Office at Tennessee Technological University.

The Purchasing and Contracts Office serves all academic and administrative University departments in the areas of purchasing and contracting and also co-administers the Tennessee Tech Procard Program.

MISSION STATEMENT. The Purchasing and Contracts Office is committed to support Tennessee Tech’s mission by using the highest procurement standards to acquire, at a level of optimal customer satisfaction, goods and services that represent best value for Tennessee Tech and to ensure that all purchases are made in accordance with Federal and State laws and requirements and Tennessee Tech policies and regulations.

 

The Purchasing and Contracts Office utilizes an eProcurement system for requisitions, purchase orders, and contracts.  Tennessee Tech Purchasers should use the link below when making eProcurement purchases. 

 

 

BEFORE YOU SIGN THAT......

When presented with any type of document requiring a signature for the University, make sure that you are properly authorized to sign it. Documents that legally bind the University are only executable by the President or his direct signatories. Unless the President has specifically designated you as a signatory for a particular document type, you could be assuming personal liability when signing. Contracts take many forms -- terms and conditions, terms of sale, rental agreement, warranty -- just to name a few. Never assume a document is harmless. Contact the Purchasing and Contracts Office online to schedule departmental contract training or by calling 3491 whenever you have a question about a document before you sign!
