Procurement Services strives to support the mission of Southern Illinois University by procuring goods and services at competitive prices in the most efficient manner and providing the highest quality of customer service to all faculty and staff of the University. Our procurement practices must comply with the rules, regulations, and guidelines established by the State of Illinois, the Illinois Procurement Code, and the SIU Board of Trustees. Procurement Services aspires to be innovative in providing value added service in meeting the varied needs of the University.
Procurement Services is responsible for the issuance of purchase orders, verification of receipts, distribution of P-Cards, P-Card compliance, and the administration of contracts. In order to ensure compliance, all purchase requisitions, along with all required approvals, supporting documentation, and/or forms, must be submitted to Procurement Services a minimum of 45 days prior to the expected date of acquiring the goods or the beginning date of the service so that the purchase order can be issued prior to the delivery of the goods and/or services. A purchase order or contract must be issued prior to the receipt of any goods or services that are performed. For further information, see Procurement Policy Board (PPB) Review
