The Procurement Department procures goods and services using best value practices while working collaboratively to meet the needs of customers. It is our mission to ensure that Towson University’s procurements are conducted in a competitive, fair and open environment 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 campus community to ensure contract compliance.
Towson University’s procurement card provides the most efficient mechanism for university employees to purchase goods and services valued at less than $5,000. The procurement card program enables university employees to apply for and receive a Visa card that can be used to make small purchases faster and easier than the standard procurement process.
Towson University values participation and competition from small and minority-owned businesses. We encourage minority business enterprise (MBE) and small business reserve (SBR) vendors to participate in nearly 100 solicitations published each year.
