Purchasing & Accounts Payable

Welcome to UWM’s Procurement Office.

The Procurement Office (comprised of Purchasing and Accounts Payable professionals) buys and pays for goods and services for the University and provides guidance on procurement practices in accordance with State, UW System, and Campus laws, policies, procedures, guidelines, and best practices.

Our goals are to support the mission and core values of the University through the efficient and effective acquisition of goods and services; to provide outstanding customer service to our stakeholders with commodity, sourcing, and compliance expertise; and to employ open, transparent, and ethical procurement processes.
