In support of the College’s Mission Statement of partnering with and fostering excellence in the educational, cultural, workforce development and economic growth of the College’s service areas, Purchasing is committed to collaborating and assisting the Faculty, Staff, and Business Community in HACC’s multi-campus environment with all their procurement needs.


The Purchasing Dept will connect with Faculty, Staff, and Business Community of HACC’s multi-campus environment in such a way that the Faculty and Staff will view Purchasing as an accessible, valuable resource that is readily utilized by all departments, and sought after early in the procurement process.


Purchasing will achieve our Mission and Vision by:

Connecting: Purchasing will reach out to Faculty, Staff, and Business Community’s needs by:

  • Listening: to better understand their needs in procuring goods and services, and
  • Respecting: their knowledge and expertise in their areas of discipline.
Educating: Purchasing will educate the Faculty, Staff, and Business Community in sound and consistent purchasing methodologies focusing on purchasing policy and procedures, purchasing law, negotiating with the supply base, and the bidding process.

Maintaining Diversity: Purchasing is committed in giving our neighbors in HACC’s surrounding communities an equal opportunity in doing business with HACC, with a strong collaboration in encouraging and mentoring the local diverse business base.

Integrity: Purchasing will operate every day with the highest level of ethical standards as defined in Purchasing’s Ethics statement.

Lowering Cost: Purchasing will stay focused on HACC’s most precious customer – the Student – by lowering costs to make education affordable and contributing to growth and success by gaining increased value for dollars spent.

Measuring: Purchasing will continuously evaluate each process and transaction with a critical eye towards implementing processes that are cost effective and value added.
