Ivy Tech strives to offer our students the best educational experience possible, including being the most cost-effective option in higher education.  And as a state funded educational institution largely supported through taxpayer dollars, Ivy Tech is also committed to responsible stewardship of taxpayer funds. These related aims lead to an overall procurement strategy built foundationally on encouraging a competitive process whenever practicable, and using that competitive process to control costs, build a diverse vendor base, and ensure ongoing vendor performance; which results in increased affordability to our students and more efficient use of taxpayer dollars.


Ivy Tech’s procurement efforts are guided by College policy, which establishes a competitive process as the foundation, while also encouraging equitable and reasonable support of businesses in our local communities, including those with diverse and traditionally under-represented ownership.

Ivy Tech has 19 campuses and 43 sites throughout the State of Indiana and serves nearly 180,000 students annually.  This breadth of coverage results in significant diversity in the communities and student population we serve.  Ivy Tech aims to reflect its communities and student population in the companies we patronize.

Additionally, as a state funded educational institution, Ivy Tech is committed to acting as responsible steward of taxpayer dollars. Our procurement policies and processes are designed to help keep costs low and to encourage support of our local businesses, with anticipated results of more efficient use of taxpayer funds and increased successes of local business and local communities.
