Procurement and Purchase carries out and supports the University’s departments and offices throughout the procurement process from a purchase need arising to payment.
The university has an established routine for purchasing goods and services according to The Public Procurement Act (LOU).
The first step is to check if the university's internal resources can be used. The listed areas below will help you further.
Some links go to an entrance page with subpages and others go directly to the service area. You need to login to Wisum using your Umu-id to access that information.

More and more products can be accessed in the e-commerce system. This includes office supplies and other consumables. Contact the responsible buyer at your department or office for assistance with the order/purchase.
Link for authorised buyers appointed by a head of department or supervisor
Link for temporary buyers
Log in using your name, email and choose department or office. Temporary visitors need to know who has been appointed authorised buyer at the department or office in question.
Framework agreements contracted by the University or the Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency (Kammarkollegiet)
The contract database contains the suppliers with whom the university has signed agreements. If there is a contracted supplier in the product or service area, an order must be placed with that supplier. Purchasing in other ways than through agreements can mean unauthorized direct procurement and breach of contract.
Please contact the authorised buyer at your institution or unit for assistance in finding such agreements and for help with placing the order/purchase.
