The Purchasing Department is exclusively responsible for purchasing goods and services in the most cost effective manner possible on behalf of all departments within the University. It coordinates the purchasing process; ensuring compliance with policies and procedures mandated by applicable state statute, the Illinois Procurement Code, University Board of Trustee regulations, and the fiscal policies and procedures of Northeastern Illinois University.
Procurement opportunities are advertised on the Illinois Public Higher Education Procurement Bulletin. To receive current announcements of Illinois Public Higher Education bid opportunities, vendors are encouraged to register at: http://www.procure.stateuniv.state.il.us. Please pay close attention to our bid requirements before submitting your proposal.
Public Act 94-1444 requires each State of Illinois University to also advertise its vendor awards and bid opportunities on its own University web site.

NEIU follows the Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200) standards effective December 26, 2014. However, we are delaying the implementation of the procurement standards as provided in 2 CFR 200.110, until June 30, 2017. During that period, we will continue to comply with the procurement standards in previous OMB guidance (as defined in 2 CFR 200.104)). Procurement specific questions may be directed to Vicky Santiago, Director of Purchasing. Questions related to the University’s compliance with the Uniform Guidance may be directed to Arielle Augustyn, Grants and Contracts Administrator.
