IPFW is a state-funded educational institution, and so must comply with certain rules regarding procurement. Throughout the purchasing process, we follow local, state, and federal statutes and regulations. We conduct our business in an ethical manner and subscribe to the National Association of Educational Procurement Code of Ethics. We are required to maintain accurate and complete documentation and to use consistent methods for making purchases.
The Purchasing Department procures goods and services for IPFW in support of the mission of the university. Our Accounts Payable staff expedites the payment of invoices and reconciliation of assigned p-cards. We strive to always be efficient, timely, cost effective and professional in providing high quality service to our customers.
We support both a centralized and decentralized procurement system to accommodate small routine and large complex procurements with an appropriate level of professional attention.
Please contact the Purchasing Department if you have any questions regarding procurement of goods or services, use of purchasing credit cards (P-card) and payment of invoices by IPFW.
