Kansas State University Purchasing Office’s mission is to support and facilitate the instructional, research, and public service missions of the University by applying the best methods and best business practices when K-State is acquiring supplies, materials, equipment, goods, property, printing, services, and leases of real property. Within the context of the K-State environment, Purchasing will promote the development and use of purchasing processes that, in turn, promote the pursuit of excellence and the best interests of K-State while maintaining the highest possible integrity, broad based competition, fair and equal treatment of the business community, and increased economies & efficiencies in the purchasing process. K-State Purchasing communicates and collaborates with other state universities and the State of Kansas Procurement and Contracts office to insure that all procurement opportunities where mutual benefit can be obtained are achieved.
