Procurement Programs

Procurement Programs  (As of 11/15/2017)


The Procurement Services uses the Procurement Program strategy for managing key spend areas at Northeastern.  This program strategy improves the management of each spend area of focus by leveraging the skills of multiple procurement team members.  Responsibilities vary for each team role but encompass program oversight, management, coordination, or reporting.  

Program Assistance

Listed below are the FY2018 team assignments for each program.  Team member assignments are subject to change as we build capabilities across each spend area of focus.  As we continue to operationalize our program strategy to efficiently support the NU community of end users and suppliers, we ask that you submit all inquiries by way of email to the program lead.  The program lead will in turn answer or coordinate the appropriate response to your question and respond by phone or email.   

Thank you in advance for your support.  Please be assured that our team will be committed to continuous improvement of our procurement programs as they evolve over time.
