Strategic Sourcing

The Strategic Sourcing was established in June of 2015 to serve as a dedicated resource for the University’s procurements of goods and services requiring a Request for Proposal (RFP) or a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process, and for contract support and expertise as needed. In addition, the Strategic Sourcing supports the overall Procurement mission of obtaining goods and services at the best overall value for the University by:

  • Assisting departments in utilization of UT System Supply Chain Alliance contracts 
  • Directing departments to Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) contracts where possible 
  • Establishing campus-wide agreements for widely-used products or services
  • Working with both the University and Vendor communities to ensure that the best strategic partnerships are established for the delivery of high quality goods and services for all end users.
