Supply Chain Management
Promoting EXCELLENCE, Delivering SERVICE
WKU Supply Chain Management is comprised of Accounts Payable, Inventory Control, Purchasing and Shipping and Receiving. We oversee the processes, tasks, and rules related to goods and services for the efficient operation of the university. These processes can also be described as planning, acquisition, distribution, payments and asset tracking. We have a Procurement Card program that includes over 800 Visa cards that are used for 80 percent of the transactions that make up approximately 20 percent of WKU's spend. We help guide all areas of the university to finding the best value for highly complex purchases that make up the other 80 percent of dollars spent on goods and services.
