Saint Louis University Business Services

What We Do

The Department of Business Services is responsible for the purchasing process throughout Saint Louis University. We work closely with schools and departments to proactively negotiate new contracts that have generated substantial cost savings across the University. We've succeeded in implementing initiatives to achieve cost efficiencies and providing tactical price structures to vendor partners across campus. New initiatives and further cost-reduction opportunities will continue to be examined to effectively address the University's growing needs.
