Purchasing Center

Mission Statement

Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts Purchasing Center.  It is our mission to assist with all aspects of the procurement process including assisting departments with orders, reimbursements, payments to individuals and all other procurement related items.  We strive to be timely, accurate and efficient.  We have the capability to purchase any items either via our preferred online ordering system or with a Purdue credit card. We are happy to help facilitate all on-line orders either by stopping by our office or we will be happy to come to your office.  

Credit Cards 

The Purchasing Center has credit cards available for check out.  We are located in Beering Hall, rooms 1131 and 1133.  We have both hospitality and general incidental credit cards available for allowable purchases on short-term check out.  We will be happy to discuss if a purchase is allowable.  It would be advisable to contact us at 44128 or 43753 to check on their availability.  Remember that Purdue is a tax exempt organization and sales tax cannot be charged – except for purchases of catered food and/or prepared food such as restaurant meals.  Please contact us at CLApurchasingcenter@purdue.edu if you have any questions.
