The Campus Service Cooperative sourcing initative seeks to bring improvements in service and lower costs through leveraging the system's purchasing power and discipline strategic sourcing exercise.
Strategic Sourcing is a disciplined, efficient, and modern approach to the way we purchase more than $550 million of goods and services annually. A fact-based approach to vendor management, driven by metrics and benchmarks that will unlock and deliver the savings to all colleges, all universities, and the system office.
As we execute sourcing strategies supported by best practices, we must be cognizant of each individual campus' objectives and missions. Our values extend beyond just finding a particular good or service for the best price and our intention is to foster relationships with key suppliers that embrace the system's values on price, quality, compliance, service, speed, local relationships, and targeted group businesses (minority, women, veteran, and disadvantaged businesses).
