The Office of Procurement supports the integral goals of the College of William & Mary and Virginia Institute of Marine Science. Procurement accomplishes this by partnering with the university community to acquire the goods and services needed, in a timely manner, at the best overall value while serving as effective stewards of the university's assets. Through development of systems, policies, procedures, and training, the Office of Procurement ensures the university remains within Federal, Commonwealth and internal guidelines in ways that enhance the university's ability to accomplish its mission.
