PROCUREMENT & RISK MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Procurement and Risk Management Services is a unit established to support the educational and research missions of Arkansas Tech University. Our department is staffed by procurement professionals who have the requisite knowledge, skills and training to assist University personnel in the purchase of required goods and services. This expertise insures that procurement decisions will be made in the best interest of the University and in compliance with the State of Arkansas procurement law and University policies. According to Arkansas Code Annotated (A.C.A.) § 19-11-703 Statement of Policy, "public employment is a public trust." As a guardian of public trust, all ATU employees should execute duties as a State employee with the utmost integrity.

A Message from the ATU Division of Administration and Finance:
As part of the Arkansas Tech University restructuring plan, the ATU motor pool rental vehicle fleet will be discontinued June 30, 2021. Beginning July 1, 2021, the ATU rental fleet, cars and vans including the 28-passenger busses and motor coach bus, will no longer be available for rental by departments.
As ATU moves away from the use of university-owned vehicles, it will be utilizing both the State of Arkansas mandatory Enterprise rental car contract and personal mileage reimbursement more frequently. In anticipation of this, the ATU Office of Travel Services has prepared various online resources to aid in the booking of rental cars and vans.Visit atu.edu/travel for more information.
