Our mission is to provide guidance and leadership to College educators, staff and administrators by working with the supplier community in the procurement of high-quality goods and services, while ensuring compliance with state and federal laws, Board policies, and administrative requirements.  The Purchasing Department strives to provide systems and procedures that will make the procurement process more efficient, cost effective and user friendly.  We are committed to maximizing the tax payer’s dollar while maintaining the highest standards of ethics, integrity, public trust and transparency.


The Purchasing Department operates under Administrative Services reporting to the Vice President of Administration and CFO.

Purchasing Function

Alvin Community College has a centralized purchasing system which requires the Purchasing Department to process all Purchase Orders for our campus. The Purchasing Department assigns purchase order numbers to all purchases, confirms all purchase orders in writing to the end-user and processes all change orders.

Vendors supplying goods or services without a valid purchase order do so at their own risk. ACC cannot guarantee payment of any goods or services provided without a valid purchase order.
