Northern Arizona University (“University”) buyers are organized in commodity groups and keep a list of vendors/suppliers offering related goods and services to which they send solicitations. Vendors that would like to receive solicitations from the University should send contact information to the appropriate commodity buyer. All University competitive solicitations appear on the University’s bid board.
While University buyers attempt to notify prospective suppliers of opportunities at the University, vendors are ultimately responsible for researching and pursuing solicitation opportunities.
University procurement transactions are authorized if a vendor receives a University purchase order or University Corporate Liability Purchasing Card. The University does not authorize procurements orally or in any written form other than a University purchase order. The only University representatives authorized to sign contracts for the University are those individuals that have been delegated authority and that appear on the list of authorized signers.
Procurements at the University are pursuant to the University’s purchasing policy.
