Welcome to the Purchasing Department

The Purchasing Department at Southeast Missouri State University is here to assist both University employees and vendors with the University's purchasing policy and procedures.

Southeast Missouri State University's Purchasing Department was established to provide for the procurement of all commodities and services required for official University business and conform to all applicable statutes and regulations.  

The objective of the purchasing process is to acquire the needed commodities and services as economically as possible within specified standards of quality and service, while giving responsible suppliers fair consideration.

We hope that this web site sufficiently guides you through our process, whether you are a University employee, a current vendor, or a vendor hoping to do business with the University.
