SUNY Downstate Medical Center

Finance Division

Contracts & Purchasing

The Office of Contracts and Procurement Management is the delegated and authorized agent for State procurement functions at Downstate Medical Center. All commitments against state appropriations must be made in full compliance with the various laws governing New York State purchasing activities.

The Purchasing Office organizes and administers a centralized purchasing service for the institution, with a basic objective to secure the most appropriate materials, supplies, equipment, services, etc., at the lowest available price consistent with quality requirements and delivery needs. It is also responsible for implementing and monitoring the Procurement Card and Business Travel Account programs.

The Contracts Department prepares and issues requests for proposal and invitations for bid, structures agreements, reviews and negotiates service and lease agreements for the campus. It manages the procurement and disbursement of major capital items through the Tax Exempt Leasing Program funding method.

The office provides advice to the Downstate community on cost-effective methods, commodity information and sourcing, negotiation and problem solving.

In an effort to clearly communicate and increase compliance with State and SUNY regulations, the Department has designed a Materials Management Bulletin to provide updates on new or revised policies and procedures regarding contracts, purchasing, accounts payable, payroll and administrative services.
