"Our unified focus on the Graduation Initiative resulted in the highest number of graduates in the history of the California State University"
— Chancellor Timothy P. White
This is a short description
Each fiscal year, nearly $2 billion is spent with the sole purpose of ensuring that every student throughout the California State University system is equipped to succeed on campus today so they can become the thought leaders of tomorrow. CSU Procurement, and our small team of professionals spread throughout the 23 campuses and the Chancellor’s Office, strategically work, research, negotiate and partner everyday so each dollar is purposefully spent and each student has access to the opportunities they deserve. As Chief Procurement Officers (CPO) we are dedicated to driving value and using the collective power of the CSU as one procurement team.
Our vision is to be a strategic partner contributing to the financial health of the CSU and higher education.
Our mission is to be a trusted partner through collaboration to maximize value across the CSU system by optimizing the procurement of goods and contracted services.
Our values influence behavior, culture and create the conditions for achieving our collaborative, visionary, results-driven, service.
