New to Procurement Services

Effective April 1, 2015, the department of Contract Administration became a new member of the Procurement Services family. This addition allows Procurement to provide service for all construction projects over $50,000 on campus. Contract Administration is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Alabama Public Works Law, Title 39, as well as timely and accurate processing of pay applications, construction contracts, change orders, and various architectural agreements.  To learn more about Contract Administration, please visit our website.

Departmental Changes

Spring is often a time of renewal and change.  Our campus blooms with the new flowers of the season and the sun begins to peak through the clouds.  We also have some exciting changes happening in the Office of Procurement Services.

Effective April 1, the staff in Contract Administration will become part of Procurement Services. They  will continue to provide excellent service to the University while administering all contracts and agreements related to construction projects.  This change will allow for all procurement of goods, services, and construction to be under one umbrella.
