Information for Suppliers



Holy Cross has a no-solicitation policy. All vendors must contact the Purchasing Department prior to visiting campus.

Operating as a centralized purchasing function, the Holy Cross Purchasing Department manages the procurement of goods and services through the employment of sound and ethical business practices.

Suppliers and service providers interested in working with Holy Cross are encouraged to send company literature and three references to:

Holy Cross
Attn: Purchasing Dept.

Our team will review your information and reach out to you when suitable opportunities arise.

As a prospective supplier, we extend an invitation for you to familiarize yourself with the process of conducting business with the College of the Holy Cross. Here are some important details:

 All contracts for goods and services that involve the College's obligations must be signed by an authorized employee with the delegated authority to represent the College. Contracts lacking the signature of an authorized College employee are considered invalid.

Prior to shipping goods or providing services to the College or its personnel, suppliers must obtain an authorized Contract, Purchase Order or a Purchasing Credit Card (PCard) number, which guarantees payment by the College. Failing to obtain an authorized Contract, Purchase Order or PCard number may result in non-payment of invoices.
