Purchasing

The majority of the goods and services purchased at CCSU are available on existing DAS contracts. Visit the Department of Administrative State Contracting Portal to search for contracts by vendor name or key word.

How to Buy commonly needed items


Here are some vendor names and phone numbers for some commonly purchased items. This is by no means a complete list. If you have a question about a particular vendor or a product or servic e not listed here, please call Purchasing and we'll be glad to help. 

Note that vendors listed with the SBE, MBE or WBE suffix are registered small, minority or woman owned businesses. As CCSU is committed to promoting utilization of set-aside (SBE), minority (MBE) and woman owned (WBE) business enterprises, we would like to encourage departments to use these businesses as much as possible. Please follow this link to the State's Supplier Diversity site to search for registered SBE/MBE/WBE companies by company name or key word.
