Strategic Sourcing

The Strategic Sourcing Team is responsible for the contract negotiation and procurement of all food and food-related items for the West Lafayette campus. Annual purchases for these items exceed $15 million. Approximately $7 million of this is warehoused and distributed through Purdue Dining & Catering.

The team is also responsible for negotiating, contracting, and administering campus vending, franchises, licenses, food service equipment, used grease removal, food grade C02 gas, and other food-related services. In addition, this office approves off-campus caterers, assisting with academic and Purdue Dining & Catering events.

Services are provided to the food service operations within the division of Dining & Catering, Hotel Tourism Management (HTM), Athletics, as well as academic departments requiring products for teaching and research.
