Affordability and Efficiency
The Ohio Task Force on Affordability and Efficiency in Higher Education, with the Board of Trustees ratification, requires Ohio University to leverage spend campus-wide through contracted suppliers and leverage spend state-wide for areas of common spend through the Inter-University Council Purchasing Group (IUC-PG). A total of six categories were specifically identified for consolidation of spend at the IUC level and the University has contracts in place for all six categories:
- Office supplies and equipment
- Computer hardware
- Outbound shipping
- Scientific supplies and equipment
- Business travel
In addition, it is an expectation, that whenever possible and practical, that university purchases are made from preferred suppliers.
