The Troy University Purchasing Department is a service function of the University. This department seeks to serve Troy University in its mission to serve its student population by assisting the students, faculty, and staff in facilitating the purchases of goods and services needed to meet both academic and non-academic goals. The Director of Procurement and Asset Management is responsible for development of policies and procedures designed to create an efficient and effective procurement environment for the University.

Staff members serve in an advisory and oversight capacity to assure that purchases are made in accordance with Institutional requirements, applicable state and federal laws and any other statutory guidelines that are inherent to the purchasing and procurement environment. The Purchasing Department relies upon the Datatel accounting application to generate legitimate purchase orders from approved purchase requisitions when these are required by established Institutional policies and procedures.
