TTUHSC El Paso Purchasing Department

Making an appointment and speaking with a member of the Purchasing staff is a critical first step to building a business relationship with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso. We want to understand your business as best as possible and will recommend leads of campus departments you may want to call upon. Also, we are able to run "spend" reports that identify which departments are buying what you are selling.

The following are the roles & responsibilities of the Purchasing Department so that you better understand the organization and how we can best help you:

  • Coordinates public bid processes for larger dollar purchases; any product or service over $15,000 must be competitively bid on an informal basis; any product/service over $50,000 must be formally bid (existing competitively awarded contracts may be considered);
