Purchasing Overview

The acquisition process is dynamic and complex in nature and greatly influenced by a wide range of variables and events both internal and external to CSU. The procurement process begins with the purchase requisition, scope of work or specifications. The purchase requisition initiates the purchasing process

Purchasing Manual (pdf)

This online Purchasing Manual is intended to explain and facilitate the processes, procedures, and regulations associated with the acquisition of products and services for Western Connecticut State University. These procedures are designed to not only comply with the Procurement guidelines established by the State of Connecticut and the Connecticut State University System but also to provide a process in which these goods and services are acquired in a timely and economical manner. While the Purchasing Department is responsible for the maintenance of the manual, it encourages all within WCSU to submit suggestions or questions concerning its content. Additionally, although the ultimate intent of the manual is to cover all the potential occurrences within Procurement, the procurement process is both complex and widely influenced by events happening within and outside the University. Issues falling outside of the guidelines will be handled on a case by case basis.

WCSU Contracting Purchasing Training Overview (pdf)

Training sessions are held throughout the year to serve and guide WCSU employees through acquisition processes with the goal of maximizing value while meeting State of Connecticut compliance standards.

The Purchasing Manual, and the Contracting Purchasing Training Overview are presented in Adobe Acrobat (pdf) format. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader, please download and install it from Adobe's web site.
