Our Mission

The mission of the Santa Monica College Purchasing Department is to provide efficient and responsive procurement services and to obtain high quality goods and services at reasonable costs, while operating at the highest standards of ethical conduct.

The Purchasing Department is responsible for the procurement of materials, equipment, and services for the College. Our objective is to obtain the best quality products and services for the best price, in a fair, open and competitive manner in compliance with California state statutes and College policies.
