Welcome to Purchasing at IIT
It is IIT’s policy to purchase goods and services in compliance with applicable law and to ensure that IIT procures appropriate and needed goods and services under terms and conditions that protect the interest of IIT, its students, and benefactors.
The Purchasing Department provides support to IIT’s students, faculty, and staff; to vendors; and to the surrounding community.
We are dedicated to providing courteous and competent service while operating under and upholding the terms of the IIT Purchasing Policy and Procedures. We guide campus to follow sound business practices with fiscal responsibility. We also guide vendors through our processes so IIT remains a valued customer.
We are committed to protect the interests of IIT’s students by maintaining an effective and responsible purchasing system thereby minimizing costs to the university.
We are committed to the effective operation of the purchasing system by:
• Providing training to the IIT community
• Developing mutually beneficial purchase agreements
• Continuing to identify competent vendors, foster productive relationships between our vendors and our buyers and evaluate the success of those relationships
