Vendor Corner

Doing Business with Sacramento State

Welcome to the Vendor Corner. The purpose of this section is to acquaint prospective bidders and suppliers with the purchasing procedures used by the California State University, Sacramento.

The University intends that its purchasing be conducted in accordance with State laws, CSU, and University policies and procedures such that students, staff, faculty and taxpayers receive full value for each dollar of public funds spent. To that end, the University's procedures conform to open, ethical and sound procurement policies. Qualified suppliers, therefore, are invited to compete for the University's business, which consists of a variety of goods and services

Sacramento State is one of twenty-three campuses in the California State University System. The Procurement and Contract Services Department is responsible for purchasing goods and services for the campus. The Department shall provide ever-dependable customer service to support the acquisition of goods and services. Quality and best available cost shall be considered as part of the procurement solution. The Department shall continue to seek innovative approaches to streamline the acquisition process; ensuring all State mandated programs are met and the University complies with State law and California State University policy. Please visit Vendor Guidelines (see below) for a full description of our buying guidelines.

Sacramento State's Procurement Department buys goods and services based on Staff Assignments.  To be placed on the bidders list for a particular commodity and/or service, contact the appropriate buyer, by e-mail or in writing, outlining the product or service you can provide. We require that vendors call to make an appointment with a buyer prior to arrival to ensure the buyer will be available at that time. Vendors are required to obtain permission from the Procurement Department prior to leaving any equipment for demonstration or loan.
