Purchasing’s primary responsibility is to help the staff and faculty to obtain the proper goods and services needed to support the university's academic mission. Purchasing is responsible for managing, advising, and monitoring all procurement activities at the University of North Georgia, reviewing all contracts, and administering the Purchasing Card (P-Card) program.


Contract Management

Contract Management is an integral part of the purchasing function and contract development often begins with the creation of a solicitation for goods or services. Once a contract has been put in place, it will be administered by the purchasing department.

All contracts and/or agreements are to be reviewed by the purchasing department before signature. In most cases, they will need to be signed by the senior vice president for business and finance.

State Contracts (aka Statewide Contracts or SWCs) have been awarded by the State of Georgia and we are allowed to purchase from them without further competitive bidding. View current SWCs.

Agency Contracts have been completed and awarded by UNG.  They typically run from year-to-year with renewal options extending them up to five (5) years. All departments using an agency contract will fill out a vendor evaluation sheet at the end of each fiscal year.


The Purchasing Card (P-Card) program simplifies day-to-day purchasing activities while enhancing cost effectiveness. The primary benefit of using the P-Card is the elimination of purchase order paperwork. This streamlines purchasing and payment procedures, reduces the administrative burden traditionally associated with small dollar value purchases, and allows for quicker receipt of goods. The P-Card offers good accountability through consistent and timely reconciliation processes and electronic management controls. The P-card is honored by all merchants who accept Visa, and there are no annual, transaction or reporting fees.
