Vendor Resources

The Purchasing Division seeks the best value and invites competitive prices whenever practical.  We assist the University with the procurement process of all goods and services in ensuring that procurement opportunities are fair, open and transparent.

Purchases are made in accordance with university policies and guidelines through existing competitively awarded contracts, informal quotations, competitive bids, and competitive proposals (RFP's). Awards are made to the lowest acceptable bidder unless criteria other than price are primary considerations of the award.

We welcome brief "drop in" interviews, however, should more time be required we recommend scheduling appointments with procurement staff by calling our reception area at (208) 282-3111.

Our office hours are regularly 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with summer hours between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

We look forward to seeing you.
