Welcome to Purchasing

The primary mission of the Procurement and Materials Management Department is to procure in a timely manner the highest quality of goods and services which provide the best value to the ACC, and to assure Management (faculty and administration) that the purchasing function is conducted with adherence to applicable federal and State laws, and ACC policies.

Anthony A. Owens, MBA
Director, Procurement and Materials Management

PLEASE READ:  Important Notice regarding FY15 End of Year Purchases


As the fiscal year winds down, Purchasing receives an increasing quantity of requisitions with long lead times.  Please send your large requisitions now.  The Purchasing Department requires a reasonable amount of time for the procurement process of bid, evaluations, encumbrance, order shipment and ACC receipts.


Requisitions and supporting documents must be received in Purchasing NO LATER THAN:
Requisitions for Furniture and Capital Equipment:
Friday, June 19, 2015
Requisitions for Services and Equipment with Formal Bids:
Friday, June 26, 2015

FY15 budgets do not rollover into FY16 budgets. For purchases to be paid with FY15 funds, all goods and/or services must be delivered and received on or before August 28, 2015.  Following the schedule above will allow prompt processing of your requisition, sufficient time to receive goods/services by the end of year deadline, and payment of good/services with FY15 funds.  Failure to adhere to the above schedule indicates budget authority approval to charge purchase requests against their FY16 budget.


It is important to notify Purchasing when Blanket Purchase Orders (BPOs) can be closed: all anticipated invoices received and paid, no additional purchases anticipated, or end of fiscal year funding.
