What we do...

Welcome to the University of Northern Colorado Purchasing and Contracts Department home page. Our intent is to provide the University community with the efficient procurement of goods and services and to ensure maximum value for dollars spent. It is our desire to provide prompt, courteous and fair treatment to all our customers, be they members of the campus community or members of the vendor community.

What’s New?

We’ve recently redesigned our purchase requisition form!  In addition to an easier to read layout, new features include additional funding and commodity/item lines, as well as, digital signatures.  For instructions on completing the form, click here.

Completed forms can be submitted through Xtender by using the “Purchasing – Requisitions Only” routing status.


UNC Fiscal Rules

Because the University of Northern Colorado is a State institution, purchases are subject to requirements contained in the Colorado State Procurement Code, and in the University Purchasing and Payment Procedures document. The buyers in the Purchasing and Contracts Department are trained purchasing professionals who understand these requirements, understand current market conditions of a vast array of goods and service, and are always glad to assist you in any way possible.

The University Purchasing and Payment Procedures document is intended to be used as a "Quick Reference" tool. Please use this information and coordinate with the buyers in Purchasing when needs arise that are not covered. Thank you for taking the time to familiarize yourself with our processes!
