Office of Strategic Procurement

The Office of Strategic Procurement at Miami University is dedicated to delivering top-tier service to both internal and external customers. Focused on continuous improvement, the office ensures fair, competitive, and equitable procurement of goods and services in alignment with Ohio state laws, university policies, and best business practices to support the university's educational mission.

Departmental Procure-to-Pay Process

When making purchases, University departments can find support for each step of the process:

Paying for goods or services (e.g., Buyway, P-Card, Travel and Expense module)

Accounts Payable

Departments seeking to accept payment should follow the Office of Investments and Treasury Services's cash handling policy.

Planning and Transacting

Purchasing plans are developed when the procurement organization becomes aware of a customer's requirement, or receives a purchase request, statement of work, or other information sufficient to begin the planning process.

Goods or services are purchased through procurement and payment methods such as a purchase order, purchasing credit card, or direct pay.


The Office of Strategic Procurement at Miami University manages a diverse range of goods and services, aiming to establish and maintain strategic relationships with suppliers for the benefit of both the University and the community.
