General Procurement Standard Election

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has updated the guidance of Procurement Standards available to non-federal entities. Under 2 CFR 200.317 – 200.326, the one year grace period of the procurement requirement has been extended to an additional grace period of one year OMB Alert - May 17, 2017. Scripps Research has exercised this option to defer, and will continue to evaluate and adopt the new Procurement Standards through Sept. 30, 2018.  


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 price.


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 optimal benefit, to ensure that our scientific goals are met.
