The mission of Purchasing, in keeping with the mission of Palm Beach State College, is to act professionally and expeditiously in procuring goods and services in accordance with established rules, regulations and good business practice while exemplifying impeccable ethics.

The purchasing function involves the procurement of goods and services at the lowest possible cost consistent with quality required for the proper operation of the College. Our goal is to act in the best interest of the College through intelligent actions, best practices, and fair business dealings consistent with the laws of the State of Florida and the policies established by the District Board of Trustees.

Purchasing is a subset of the Procurement Department, a branch of Finance & Administration.


Suppliers are encouraged to review the Doing Business with PBSC page that includes information on current and past competitive solicitations, how to register as a supplier, Purchase Order for Commodities and Services Terms and Conditions and the College’s current tax exemption certificate & W-9 forms.
