Purchasing Office

Procurement and Contract Services


The Purchasing office supports departments in obtaining the goods and services needed to accomplish the University's mission and goals. The Purchasing office is part of the Procurement and Contract Services Department at ETSU.  As a university of over 14,500 students and 2,200 employees, ETSU has need of many services and goods to carry out its educational mission.  As a state institution, ETSU is required to take special care of the public funds that enable it to carry out its purpose. 

In order to remain accountable and effective in its acquisitions, ETSU must comply with various state regulations.  The Purchasing office is charged with assisting each University department in complying with the requirements of  the State of Tennessee. 

It is our hope that this site will assist University staff as well as vendors in complying with all applicable regulations and in making the acquisition process as efficient as possible.
