Purchasing / Procurement Services

As a Purchasing Team, our goal is to provide purchasing and contractual services to the Mines campus. We support students, staff and faculty to carry out their work and achieve their goals within the framework of Mines policies and procedures as well as all local, state and federal laws and regulations.


Purchasing Basics

Personal Services Certifications, Waivers and Forms

According to Human Resources policy, all purchase requisitions for personal services over $5,000 must be accompanied by a completed “Certification for Personal Services Agreements” form (found on the HR Website) including all the required supporting documents unless a waiver exists. All requisitions above $50,000 must also have an additional completed “Personal Services Business Case” form (found on the HR website) attached.

Price Agreements

Colorado School of Mines may procure merchandise from most of the websites linked below. Items purchased from the agreements will not need to be solicited for bids.
