Service Level Agreement (SLA)

Procurement has received feedback from a number of campus department leaders and business managers regarding the level of customer service and timeliness of delivery of procurement services. Effective December 2018, below are the Service Level Agreements for the mostly widely-used procurement transactions. Our goal is to improve the overall purchasing experience by providing guidance and assistance to the campus for purchasing goods/services, thus facilitating an excellent experience for our students.

Please note that all solicitations require numerous documents from departments before Procurement Services can begin the process per state rules. The Procurement team will ensure email updates are provided indicating acknowledgement of the requests beginning December 3rd, 2018.
