Purchasing

Business Services is responsible for the payment of all goods and services purchased by the University. Contracts such as professional/technical, leases, construction, joint powers, and inter-agency agreements are encumbered and executed by Business Services. Business Services advises University departments on the purchasing laws, rules, regulations, policies and procedures mandated by the State of Minnesota, MnState and the University.

In our effort to keep track of expenses directly related to COVID-19, please include "COVID-19" in all descriptions for Purchasing Card Reconciliations, Purchase Orders, and Employee Expense Reports. If only a part of the expense is related, please notate that.
