Purchasing Services

Faculty and Staff Guide to Purchasing


Purchasing Services maintains the central procurement office for the Pitt-Johnstown campus. The department operates within the general policies and practices as established by the University of Pittsburgh.   

It is a supplier's responsibility to perform work or provide goods only with the proper authorization (purchase order, contract or agreement) issued by an authorized buyer. Without this authorization payment may be delayed on products or services rendered.

Although transactions may require a joint effort by the department end-user, an authorized purchasing unit, and the supplier; only the authorized purchasing unit may commit to a contractually binding arrangement.
