The mission of the Procurement Department is to support the scientific endeavors of our scientists by providing them with superior equipment, products, and services at a competitive cost.
In order to meet the needs of our scientific constituents, we strive to become leaders and innovators within the biomedical research community. Achieving this ambitious goal will require superior customer service and forward thinking processes with an aim to achieve operational excellence in all procure-to-pay functions. Ultimately, the Procurement Department's partnerships with our scientists, our administrative colleagues, and our suppliers will maximize the "cost-to-value" relationship, to ensure that our scientific goals are met.
We are a single Procurement Department with offices in two locations supporting local activities: one in La Jolla, California and the second one in Jupiter, Florida. Procurement's staff is made up of Sourcing Teams focused on large categories of spend and building internal partnerships throughout the Institute. We are a team of dedicated and accountable professionals focused on driving value to our scientists and our administrative colleagues. We are enthusiastic about our mission, vision, and values in supply chain management.
