Welcome to the UMBC Department of Procurement and Strategic Sourcing
This site is designed to assist UMBC departments and outside vendors with the process of doing business with and within the University. If you have any questions not addressed by this site please do not hesitate to contact an appropriate staff member.
In support of UMBC’s mission, this department procures goods and services using best value practices while working collaboratively to meet the needs of our customers. The office ensures the University’s procurements are conducted in a competitive, fair and open environment and in full compliance with applicable policies, laws, and regulations. We identify opportunities to establish contracts that capitalize on the University’s buying power and work closely with the institution’s community to ensure contract compliance.
