Purchasing Department


Purchasing assists all Western Michigan University departments in procuring goods and services needed throughout the University. Utilizing Purchasing Department services allows departments to be more efficient and realize cost savings while ensuring the University complies with laws, regulations and University policies and procedures.

The Purchasing Department establishes and manages supplier relationships. Any supplier interested in conducting business with Western Michigan University may apply to do so through the Vendor Resources page on the Purchasing Department website.

At this time the Purchasing Department offices are open by appointment only.  All purchase requests should be submitted electronically to wmu-purchasing@wmich.edu. Additional approvals may be required to process your request.  If you have questions regarding submitted documents, you may contact us. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
