Purchasing Services

Purchasing Services is a unit of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center Office of Finance and Operations. The mission of Purchasing Services is to serve as a value-added resource to the campus community by providing quality acquisition and related services.

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center strives to ensure that IT products developed at, purchased by, or used at the University are accessible to all faculty, students, and staff, including those with disabilities. To reach this aspirational goal, those responsible for making decisions about which products to procure must consider accessibility as one of the criteria for acquisition. This is especially critical for enterprise-level systems and other technologies that affect a large number of students, faculty, and/or staff. Please consider University of Tennessee fiscal policy IT0216 during the procurement process.

  • establish purchasing contracts
  • make purchase commitments on behalf of University departments
  • administer the surplus property disposal program
  • provide training for the University's on-line financial system (IRIS)
