Strategic Sourcing

The Strategic Sourcing Department is here to support schools, departments, and stakeholders in acquiring products and services for Georgetown University. We are responsible for Master Service Agreements, Sole Source Justifications, and other major purchasing efforts.

We recommend you reach out to us about all purchases $50k and over that are not through a preferred supplier.
