In the following pages, you will be introduced to the acquisition practices WHOI has adopted. In developing these policy and procedures we have tried to ensure conformity with most federal and private funding agencies. Our purchasing and payment system has been approved by the Department of Navy Research and conforms to the requirement of government funded purchases.
The Purchasing staff are ready, willing and able to perform any and all processes required to acquire your needs in a timely cost effective manner. Whether you wish them to manage the entire process or only need them to assist you, our staff is trained to provide you with all the expertise you will need.
There are also many tools and forms to assist you in your purchasing requirements. These range from commodity specific tips from our staff to links to suppliers with whom we negotiated contracts to actual order placement sites.
We hope you find these pages informative. Please feel free to contact the purchasing team with questions or comments about this site.
