Administrative Services

Mission

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth’s Administrative Services operation facilitates the University fulfilling its mission and vision by Maximizing Effectiveness of Available Resources and mitigating risk in Procurement, Contract Management, Property Control, Risk Management, and Receiving & Distribution.  We partner with the campus community to deliver holistic innovative value-driven Solutions based on transparency, data, professionalism, expertise and commitment to a quality campus experience.

Vision

To be recognized as a best in class performing supply chain and logistical support organization, we embrace best practices and technology as we work together as valued Business Partners to our community to advance excellence in our University community.

Business Consultants

The Administrative Services “model” is one where we seek to serve the campus community as your “business consultant.” We are here to provide services that enhance the community while simultaneously facilitating the mission and vision of the University.  Business Consultants are experienced professionals that act as the primary point of contact to the community pertaining to any questions regarding services associated with the Administrative Services organization.  

The individual Business Consultant assigned to your department should be engaged when you are not sure of the appropriate “subject matter expert” on staff to assist you with your specific needs and requirements. If it is not their core area of responsibility, they will then facilitate the engagement with the appropriate subject matter expert.   

Business Consultants have also been assigned primary Category Management Responsibilities.  This goes beyond just being assigned product or service commodity areas.  They are proficient in best business practice, industry influences, contracting, policy, sourcing and administration of sourcing events and will use such knowledge to service the campus community appropriately.
