Procurement


The KU Center for Research values exemplary business practices in the procurement of goods and services. Our procurement policy applies to the acquisition of supplies, materials, equipment, goods, property, printing, certain leases and services, including professional services paid for with funds on deposit with KUCR. 

We work to obtain all supplies, equipment and services at the lowest cost that meet or exceed the customer’s specifications for performance, quality and availability at the time of purchase. Competitive bids are solicited whenever possible and practical and in compliance with all applicable federal regulations and KUCR policies.
