Quick Facts About Us

  • In FY15, Purchasing teamed up with the Controller's Office and Infrastructure and Technology Support to rewrite the Mobile Device Policy.  As a result the Mobile Telephone Stipend Policy went into effect on October 1, 2014.  For more information on the policy, please visit the Mobile Device Stipend Program website.
  • In FY15, over 95% of all requisitions were processed through the Xavier Buy (SciQuest) e-Procurement system, significantly reducing the amount of paper consumed throughout the university.
