Purchasing

Our Mission

The mission of the GTCC Purchasing Department is to support the college’s overall mission by procuring supplies, equipment, and services in a timely manner and by obtaining the most advantageous pricing. We provide information, assistance, and service to our faculty and staff, who are then better able to serve our students.

The Purchasing Department has sole authority within the institution to buy goods and services for use by the faculty, staff, and administration. All requests to purchase goods and services must be submitted directly to the Purchasing Department, or by use of the procurement card (P-card).

The College’s purchasing system is under the supervision of the Director of Purchasing. The system provides for the orderly and cost effective acquisition of the products and services needed to support the College and its mission and is in compliance with state law and administrative code governing the conduct of agencies expending public funds.
