Procurement Buying

Eliminating additional/unnecessary work

  • Review SOWs to ensure accuracy, compliance, and reduced risk for the university.
  • Partnering with departments to quickly locate Internal Service Providers (ISPs).
  • Working with Yale’s preferred suppliers to provide the necessary goods/services at reduced prices.

Minimizing your risk exposure

  • Ensuring that supplier’s terms align with Yale’s requirements.
  • Validating that quotes are valid/not outdated.
  • Confirming that non-standard payment types are not being requested.
  • Affirming that Yale’s agreements are used instead of suppliers.
  • Ensuring that Yale (not the supplier) owns IP (intellectual property).
  • Verifying that the supplier does not have terms that would allow them to use Yale’s brand (name or logo(s) in their marketing efforts).
