The Purchasing Office is combined with the Accounts Payable and Travel Office. The purchasing function is decentralized with the majority of the vendor selection decisions being made at the department level. See "How to do business with Columbus State" for contact names and phone numbers for specific commodity types. The Purchasing Office generally handles the vendor selection of all furniture and large capital equipment purchases.
