Ivy League Purchasing Group
Purchasing Services works closely with members of the Ivy League
Purchasing Group to share purchasing strategies and knowledge, identify and
investigate new purchasing related technologies and to explore the possibility
of leveraging our combined purchasing volume while supporting individual
school business requirements. Original limited to the Ivy League schools,
the Ivy League Purchasing Group has since expanded its membership to include
schools from across the country.
