Welcome

Welcome, and thank you for visiting the William Paterson University Purchasing Department web site. The Purchasing Department was created in 1968 as a result of the need to provide an efficient means to procure goods and services for the growing University community. It has continued to provide this service through many changes.

The Purchasing Department is responsible for developing and administering consistent, fair and effective purchasing practices via competitive public bidding, bulk purchasing and quality discounts in accordance with State of New Jersey and University policies. We are committed to providing the highest quality of service to our customers and ensure we obtain the maximum value for every dollar while complying with procurement policies. We are responsible for acquiring all materials, supplies and certain services and are committed to University values of diversity and equity.
