Purchasing — Silicon Valley Campus Forms & Policies

The purchasing of all supplies by members of the Silicon Valley Campus is coordinated through the campus administration to ensure all purchases are properly recorded in the university purchasing system. Many factors affect the method of procurement, including order total, vendor preference, etc. 

When making purchases, the university recommends using preferred vendors when possible; these vendors have agreed-to terms and conditions with CMU, and the required paperwork is considerably less than using a non-preferred vendor. View preferred vendors listed by name and commodity (Andrew login required).
