Strategic Sourcing

What's new

We are pleased to announce the distribution of $673,736 in rebates to the colleges and universities that used CSC contracts and programs in FY16. Thank you for your support and collaboration.

Strategic Sourcing is a disciplines, efficient and modern approach to the way Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (Minnesota State) purchases more than $550 million in goods and services. Our mission is to provide oversight and facilitation of all of Minnesota State's purchasing process to ensure accountability and responsibility in purchasing policies, procedures and practices. We accomplish this by leveraging the buying power of our 37 colleges and universities through enterprise-wide contracts while respecting the needs of each individual campus.
