P-Card Reconciliation Process
In collaboration with Mohawk College of Applied Arts and Technology and the City of Hamilton, the University has secured a contract with Dell Canada Inc for supplying IT equipment. This will allow the University to receive substantial cost savings and to purchase sustainable products that are EPEAT Gold certified and have an Energy Star rating of 5.0.

Strategic Procurement is comprised of Purchasing Services, Customs and Traffic,
and Stores. Strategic Procurement negotiates and makes purchases on behalf
of University departments. Two Stores locations (ABB-B166 and HSC-4N43) provide
the campus community with a wide variety of inventory of goods to service
our day-to-day operations. Customs and Traffic provide clearing and
expediting of incoming and outgoing shipments.
In order for the University to continually maintain its objectives and
position of leadership, it is imperative that we continually strive for
lower costs, improved quality and improved service in every area of our
business operation. A large element of costs and quality is purchased
material and services. Strategic Procurement strives for cost reduction,
process control and more streamlined management of our responsibilities.
Strategic Procurement is an important activity where it is mandatory that
the responsibility for buying materials and services be assigned to a group
of people trained and skilled in negotiating, contractual terms and
conditions, cost reduction and other purchasing techniques. Each one of us
is a McMaster University ambassador to those with whom we do business. The
primary responsibility of the Strategic Procurement Department is to
facilitate the purchase of materials, supplies and services, with the
objective that they will be available at the proper time, in the proper
place, in the quantity, quality and price consistent with the needs of the
University. It is the duty of this Department to ensure all Procurement
activity complies with the Broader Public Sector Procurement Directive, and
demonstrates Value for Money.
