eProcurement and Materials Management
This department reports to Procurement and Strategic Operations.
eProcurement and Materials Management helps campus units get the everyday supplies and materials they need to operate in the most cost-effective and efficient way. The department is responsible for payments to many University suppliers. By leveraging the University’s purchasing power and developing strategic relationships with preferred vendors, the department implements vendor contracts for purchases of less than $25,000.
Please note that both Airgas and ARC3 will be closed on Thursday, November 24, and Friday, November 25 in observance of Thanksgiving holiday and will resume their regularly scheduled hours on Monday, November 28.

A new Mandatory State Term Contract was implemented with ARC3 and Airgas in March 2022 and subsequent changes to the state pricing were submitted in July. There have been significant increases in the cost of products, including a sharp rise in the price of liquid Nitrogen, cylinder rentals (Airgas) and additional surcharges to ease inflationary pressures associated with production and delivery of these products. These increases have already been incorporated into the punchout catalogs of the two compressed gas vendors and have likely been noted on recent invoices.
