Yale University Purchasing Services helps the University to consolidate purchases for common items that we use collectively in large quantities such as office supplies, computers and lab supplies.

Using advanced bidding techniques, Purchasing Services saves the University money and improves the terms of Yale’s agreements with suppliers.

A few examples of this are:

  • Transaction-processing tools and services
  • Consultation services to help departments discover savings opportunities
  • Negotiation and creation of large university-wide contracts
  • Recommendations for sustainable purchases
  • Customer service, training and quality assurance for procurement tools and business processes
  • Best overall value of goods and services
  • Recommending business practices to save you time and money
