Procurement

The Procurement office is dedicated to providing prompt, professional attention to each department’s needs, while developing systems, policies, and procedures that ensure the best value for the college.

Performance will be measured on a yearly basis and will be bench marked to the best industry practices.

We will be business partners with all employees and vendors, providing support, information, and analysis that assist in reducing the cost of materials and services. Specific responsibilities include contract management, dispute management and resolution, promoting and contributing to value-producing consortia relationships, training and education within the college about proper procurement practices, and financial analysis.

Office Hours

The Procurement Services team will be holding office hours in Nichols Hall so that any faculty or staff member may discuss questions or concerns they have with any aspect of, for example, Workday contracts, the contracts@Babson review process, Babson’s competitive RFP process, or any other function housed in the Procurement Services department. This is a great opportunity to receive customized input on how to properly and efficiently manage your departments procurement processes.

For the Fall semester, the details of the office hours sessions are below. Please contact procurement@babson.edu with any questions. Thank you
