All suppliers are asked to visit the Purchasing Department first when they are on the Gonzaga University campus. Suppliers are required to fill out the Vendor Information Profile and the Request for Federal Tax Identification Number forms before transactions are initiated with the University.
Purchasing Department hours are 8:00 AM to noon and 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday. Appointments are recommended.
Supplier representatives should realize that all purchasing transactions must be routed through the Purchasing Department. The sales representative must not accept a verbal order from University personnel without a valid purchase order number.
Suppliers who wish to leave demonstration equipment with University personnel must coordinate that demonstration with the Purchasing Department. The University assumes no risk or liability for a demonstration unit. If a department decides to purchase the demonstrated equipment, then the department must process the order according to standard purchasing procedures. The Purchasing Department reserves the right to request quotes, bids or proposals.
Every attempt is made to be fair and impartial in dealing with suppliers. The Purchasing Department strives to maintain the highest standards of business ethics, professional courtesy and competence in all transactions for the University.
