The mission of the Purchasing Department is to facilitate the procurement of goods and services for the Wellesley College community at pricing and quality that meets or exceeds the end user's expectations. We hope to create an environment where Wellesley College Departments would employ the most effective and innovative methods for procuring quality goods and services. Our responsibilities include providing the Wellesley College with policies that foster an ethical, responsive and efficient environment and recognizing the department's obligations to our suppliers and our internal customers.  The Wellesley College Purchasing Department is committed to the highest standards of service and continuously strives for improvement in all these areas.
