calculator The Purchasing department is responsible for acquiring goods and services through requisitions, purchase orders and the procurement card which enable the University to accomplish its goals. It is our responsibility to assist in the purchasing of goods and services by obtaining the best value in quality, delivery and cost while maintaining that all procurements are handled in a fair and ethical manner.

UHD is committed to increasing contracting opportunities for historically underutilized businesses (HUBs). Out of that commitment, a program was created to enhance the ability of HUBs to compete for UHD contracts, increase the agency's awareness of such businesses and ensure meaningful HUB participation in the procurement process.

The University of Houston-Downtown Procurement Card Program (P-Card) provides a cost effective way to make certain purchases. The card is issued to an employee of the University for the purposes of making authorized purchases on the University'​s behalf. All procurement card purchases must directly benefit the University.
