Purchasing Policy & Procedures

About Purchasing

The University of Nebraska at Omaha Purchasing Office helps facilitate the purchase of supplies, services and equipment for the campus. Construction contracts are bid through Facilities Management & Planning, with final approval and signatures applied in the Purchasing Office.

The University of Nebraska Board of Regents has established a purchasing policy to provide uniform guidelines for the administration of the University of Nebraska. This policy applies to funds administered by the University for the purchase of supplies, equipment and services.

The commitment of University funds is made by means of an official University purchase order or contract, approved by the appropriate administrative officer or designee.
