Our mission is to purchase the right goods and services, in the right quality and quantity from the right supplier to meet the Department’s needs.
We conduct business with individuals, small businesses, hotels and conference centers, large corporations, universities, Arizona Department of Administration (ADOA) and other state agencies.
