Procurement and Contract Services

For Suppliers:

Ohio University wants to alert you to an active email scam involving purchase orders and requests for product quotations that purport to originate from Ohio University but are in fact, fraudulent. While the university cannot prevent this illegal activity, we are actively working with law enforcement to investigate these fraudulent email contacts. Please review "How to Do Business with Ohio University". It is always a best practice to insist on a valid Purchase Order from your customer prior to shipping any product. For additional information, please click here and here.

Procure to Pay Services’ mission is to serve the Ohio University community with a customer centric focus.  We provide our expertise in procurement sourcing, risk management, and timely payment to the university’s external suppliers while ensuring compliance with Ohio Revised Code and other statutes, University Policy, and GAAP. Working together, we can strategically reduce costs for our customers through collective purchasing and efficient payment processing. Our goal centers around assisting the planning units in saving money and resources that can be used to support the university's core educational and research activities while protecting the institution from unacceptable risk.

Ohio University will delay implementation of the Uniform Guidance procurement section as provided by the waiver of procurement rules stated in the Federal Awarding Agency Regulatory Implementation of The Uniform Guidance Procurement Standards in §§200.317-200.326, released December 19, 2014. The university will delay implementation of the new procurement guidelines until July 1, 2018 and, in the interim, will follow the guidance of the prior standards (A-110).
