Our Mission  

  • To support the academic, administrative and operational activities of the Academy by locating competitive sources of the quality goods and services required by the Academy community
  • To negotiate favorable terms, conditions and pricing, and to arrange for delivery when and where needed
  • To monitor supplier compliance with purchase order contracts and resolve discrepancies

The Purchasing Department procures all goods and services on the best terms and at the lowest overall cost, consistent with an appropriate level of quality. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts refers to this process of procurement as 'Best Buy' Procurement practices. Acquisition will be without favoritism and on a competitive basis, whenever practical, to obtain maximum value for each dollar expended. All interested suppliers will receive fair and impartial consideration.

Service to you is our priority. If you need assistance, call us at ext. 5041. We will help you through all aspects of the procurement process.
