Buying and Paying

Buying and paying for goods and services involves identifying appropriate suppliers and purchasing methods that meet the operating needs of Columbia schools, programs, and projects, as well as processing University payments for purchases, expenses, and awards.

Columbia prioritizes shopping the CU Marketplace to order and pay for goods from more than 20 enabled suppliers.
