Le Moyne College Office of Purchasing supports the educational, instructional and research missions of the College. The Office of Purchasing is staffed by procurement professionals with the essential knowledge, skills and training in order to assist the Le Moyne community in purchasing optimum quality goods and services in the correct quantity, timely manner and at the lowest possible cost.
The Purchasing Department's responsibilities include:
  • Identifying supplier sources for equipment, supplies and services
  • Preparing bid specifications and formal requests for quotations and proposals
  • Evaluating competitive bids; awarding and coordinating contracts

Office Materials & Miscellaneous Supplies:  The college is partnered with a host of vendors, retailers, and service providers.  If you're looking for something specific that might be classified outside of a traditional office supply, please contact our office so we can ask our various partners to prepare quotes.  

Amazon Purchases: Le Moyne utilizes a corporate account with Amazon that is specific to higher education facilities.  As Amazon has become the ubiquitous name in online-shopping, nearly every office across campus is using the retailer to procure materials. Making these purchases through our Purchasing Office will grant access to our Education Prime account.  As with all Prime shipments, such purchases are free of any shipping charges.  Additionally, the tax-exempt status is already established with Amazon, so orders will not include taxes.  We encourage all college offices to contact Purchasing for any Amazon requests in order to capitalize on the benefits received from our corporate account.
