Supply Chain Management: Purchasing

Central Purchasing Team

The Purchasing Department is responsible for securing the purchase of supplies, equipment, and services for The University of Texas Medical Branch. We ensure efficient and cost-effective practices, operating under the framework of Texas State law, Texas Procurement and Support Services (TPASS), the University of Texas System Board of Regents Rules and Regulations, and institutional policies and procedures.

Purchasing supports UTMB's Clinical, Research, Academic, and Business entities. Our primary services are: acquisition planning and project assistance; order processing; vendor/supplier management; and customer support. Additionally, Purchasing defines and implements the system and guidelines for both Purchasing and delegated purchasing levels - providing documentation, support, and process review.
