Welcome to Procurement

As financial stewards of the university, Procurement competitively solicits, negotiates commercial contracts, and issues orders for goods and services in support of MSU's mission. Through negotiation and strategic sourcing, Procurement reduces costs and improves efficiencies—while complying with federal, state, and university policies, laws, and regulations.

For complex or high-dollar transactions, involving Procurement early in the process will yield the best results.
