Procurement & Contracts

Office is Moving: Effective July 1, Procurement and Contracts (P&C) reports directly to the VP of Business, Finance, and Facilities. Procurement has become a hot topic at the Board of Governors, and with the Director Angie Jones, being the chair of Inter-Institutional Committee on Purchasing (ICOP) and VP Susan Stephenson, being the Council for Administrative and Financial Affairs (CAFA) representative to ICOP, responses to BOG requests will be handled more efficiently. P&C will be moving to their new home in 20W sometime before the Thanksgiving break. 

Judy Jasmyn Retiring: Judy, Senior Buyer, will be retiring effective July 25, 2014, after 10 years of service to UWF. For those of you who have had the pleasure of working with Judy, you know she will be missed and hard to replace. We wish Judy the best of luck in the next phase of her life. 

Procurement Contracts: Please note that any contract that P&C will need to handle should be sent to first. P&C will be responsible for forwarding to General Counsel. This will allow for centralization and proper routing and monitoring. Instructions and new routing slip will be forthcoming. This does not apply to contracts that don’t normally flow through P&C.
