Procurement & Supplier Diversity Services


Procurement & Supplier Diversity Services (PSDS) is focused on lean practices and process improvements that make the purchasing, travel & expense, and payables experience better for their clients.

PSDS manages University spend to the greatest extent possible in the University’s decentralized environment by purchasing quality goods and services at competitive prices, providing proper financial stewardship for payments, and extending responsive and responsible service to all University departments.

Major services include:

Currently, PSDS is working to upgrade the current Jaggaer Source-to-Pay technology solution to provide users with access to a single, easy-to-use tool for electronic catalog purchasing, sourcing, vendor management that is self-service, and contract management. 2018 will also see PSDS finding solutions to faculty requests for personalized procurement services, expanding the strategic sourcing program, collaborating with the Recon@ team to ease the reconciliation process for purchased items and travel/expense items, and working with Sponsored Programs to develop a toolkit of researcher-specific procurement and Sponsored Program tips.
