Procurement 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.

The P-Card, or Purchasing Card, is a State sponsored credit card used for making purchases without having a Purchase Order. The P-Card is the preferred method for making small dollar purchases. It is very convenient for shopping online, buying from vendors who do not accept purchase orders, and paying for conference registration fees.
