Procurement Retreat

Save the date. Kutztown University is having our first procurement retreat Thursday, May 18. We are still working on the agenda, but we wanted to share the date with our KU community so you can put a hold on your calendar (please clear with your supervisor first.) We will have procurement-shared services team members on campus for the day to provide in-person training on specific topics, answer our procurement questions and discuss the procurement process and who we need to contact for assistance. More information will follow at a later date with registration information. Feel free to contact Tammy Moyer if you have a topic you want the team to address during this retreat.
