Procurement Portal

The Procurement Portal is coming later this year.

Once available, the Procurement Portal will provide a simplified and streamlined way for KU Faculty and Staff to engage the Procurement Team to execute a supplier contract, negotiate commercial terms, run a competitive bid, and more!

Plus, the Procurement Portal will expedite various approvals including those related to data security, if applicable, while also getting Procurement involved earlier to negotiate more favorable terms for KU and positively impact your budget.

For now, contact Procurement directly or email
