The study presents data from 50 college purchasing departments with a mean annual budget $153 million and a range of $100,000 to $1 billion in purchasing spending. Bargaining power has shifted from sellers to buyers in many key markets and the report relates how purchasing departments are taking advantage of the shift.

The report also details policies on a broad range of critical higher education purchasing issues, including: use of credit and purchasing cards, reimbursement and arrangement of faculty & staff travel, level of involvement in supplier selection of the purchasing department for a broad range of goods and services, use of consortiums, use of auction sites, thresh holds for bid requirements, size and remuneration of purchasing department staff, warehouse logistics, sale of surplus or used materials, green purchasing policies, and trends in purchasing in many areas.

Just a few of the report's many finding are that:

- Mean spending on salaries for the colleges in the sample was $550,642 while the median was $307,500. Colleges with more than 25,000 students averaged $1.23 million in purchasing department salaries, and one college spent $2.3 million. READ MORE >
