The university purchases a wide variety of products and services, from computers and lab supplies to catering and printing services. Procurement Services is responsible for assisting departments with the procurement process in the most cost-efficient and convenient way possible, while ensuring compliance with university policies.
There are two different types of university suppliers where products and services can be purchased:
The Find Products and Services page provides buying information specific to each commodity or service, by strategic contact or internal service provider, and/or by other supplier attributes including diverse, sustainable, and Michigan suppliers.
Before you make a purchase, you should familiarize yourself with Buying Methods and Process and Policies. The preferred buying method will be either through one of the strategic suppliers or from a university internal service provider. All transactions totaling $10,000 or greater must be competitively bid, and must go through Procurement Services (SPG 507.01) if one of the preferred methods is not used.
