Strategic Sourcing

Strategic Sourcing supports the State System’s 14 universities and the Office of the Chancellor (located at the Dixon University Center).  We are responsible for identifying strategic contracting opportunities and establishing best value contracts in partnership with our suppliers.  Strategic Sourcing identifies the best value strategy based upon the type of goods and services being procured at reasonable costs in direct support of the educational mission of the State System and its universities.

Additional resource information for State System staff is available at the State System's intranet site (logon required).


The Construction Support Office (CSO) is a component of the Facilities Management Office​ and has coordination and oversight responsibilities for a variety of functions related to design and construction of facilities at the System's 14 universities.

    • Centrally-held open-end professional contracts procured and administered by CSO
    • Specific projects and contract opportunities with the System and its 14 universities 
    • General information on projects being administered for the System by the PA Department of General Services
