It is the mission of the procurement program to support the purpose and goals of The Texas A&M University System — its educational, research, patient care, and public service missions — by purchasing and providing quality goods and services at competitive prices, proper financial stewardship for payments, and providing responsive and responsible service throughout the A&M System.
The mission is achieved by dedication to excellence in customer service, providing avenues of access to businesses, processing orders in a timely manner, streamlining operations, pursuing cost savings, identifying new sources of supply, developing relationships with small, minority, and women-owned vendors, and complying with all laws of the State of Texas.
In general, System Offices departments have been delegated authority to make purchases of goods and/or services costing less than $10,000.00, such as equipment, supplies, and services. This dollar delegation allows departments to expedite the purchase of goods and/or services without having to process the request through the the Procurement Office. All purchases over $10,000.00 are to be forwarded to the Procurement Office for processing.
Each A&M System member is responsible for its own purchasing. Vendors are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate purchasing department at each member where the requisitions for the goods and/or services your company provides are processed. A&M System procurement directors/managers contact information is listed below.
