Procurement and Materials Management

Our Commitment

The mission of the Procurement and Materials Management Department is to provide the procurement of quality goods and services in direct support of the educational and associated missions of the University. Our procurement practices are in accordance with the requirements of the state of Missouri laws and University regulations. The policies, procedures, and processes allow for the best possible position to obtain the goods and services needed in a timely and cost-effective manner, while also making sure appropriate business processes are followed.  

The University of Central Missouri's online bidding system (eBidding) is the only method accepted for bid submissions. The system eliminates traditional paper bids and replaces them with a streamlined, electronic-submission process.  Please direct any questions to or call (660) 543-4001.

The role of the Procurement office is to help departments make informed, best-value purchasing decisions. The primary responsibilities of the Procurement office are to:

  • Understand business requirements
  • Procure goods and services
    • At the right specification that meets the department’s needs
    • In the right quantity
    • At the right price
    • From the right source
    • For delivery at the right time.

As part of the services provided to the campus, the Distribution Services Center will deliver, pick-up and process U.S. Mail and packages in accordance with all policies and regulations and will serve as the subject matter experts.
