Procurement Services Department
Mission Statement: It is our mission to procure goods and services in the most cost effective and efficient manner to support needs of the University of Central Oklahoma while encouraging competition among vendors through fair negotiating within quote seeking, solicitations and consortium purchasing. Our intention is to process payments to valued vendor partners in a timely manner. Relationships matter. With this, we maintain a commitment to excellence through professional ethics, customer service and best business practices while ensuring compliance with all University policies and procedures, RUSO Policy, Oklahoma Statutes and the Oklahoma Department of State Finance.

BEWARE OF FRAUDULENT EMAILS REQUESTING QUOTES OR PURCHASE ORDERS!
The University of Central Oklahoma Procurement Services Department wishes to alert suppliers of recent activity involving scams that appear to be asking for price quotes or purchase orders on behalf of UCO. We regret we are not able to prevent this illegal activity but will remain diligent in our efforts to report these scams to law enforcement to actively investigate this internet crime.
Please be aware of a few of the common signs of these fraudulent emails and be very suspicious of emails that include the following:
- Poorly written emails with poor grammar and typographical errors.
- Emails that request shipment or delivery to another address that appears to be off campus or to another state.
- Examples of sender email addresses that are fraudulent: email@example.com. These emails are not associated with the University.
If unsure, please contact the University of Central Oklahoma Procurement Services Department directly at 405-974-3340.
