You don’t have to be a student to be part of the Delta College community supporting student success. 

At Delta College, several departments work in coordination with external vendors to support College goals and initiatives. You could be one of them. 

Delta College.


How it works

Purchasing department

The Delta College Purchasing Department is responsible for the procurement of all equipment, services, materials, and supplies utilized by the Delta College campus. In providing these services in accordance with sound business practices, the office seeks to realize the maximum value for every dollar expended.

At Delta College, only the Purchasing Department can commit to a contract with a vendor. Individual departments can make informal inquiries, but all official and legal contracts go through Purchasing.

Sustainable Purchasing

Delta College is committed to incorporating environmentally-conscious choices into purchasing and procurement processes, and promotes sustainable purchasing by applying the methodology of "reduce, reuse, recycle and recover."

Whenever possible, Delta College considers the environmental impacts of a product or service when making purchasing, including choosing products that:

  • are the most energy efficient, including EPEAT and Energy Star rated;
  • have a high recycled content, especially post-consumer recycled content;
  • reduce solid waste (have less packaging, are reusable and durable);
  • are the least environmentally damaging through their lifecycle, in manufacturing, use and disposal;
  • and are made or grown locally.

Unless otherwise noted on the purchase order, all deliveries are to be made directly to Shipping and Receiving. Shipments are normally received between 8am and 4pm, Monday through Friday. Delta College will not accept liability for goods and services ordered and/or shipped to the College without an approved purchase order.


After items have been delivered or services performed, invoices can be sent to:

Delta College
Attn: Accounts Payable, B116
1961 Delta Road

University Center, MI 48710

Or emailed to:

Invoices should reference the purchase order number, complete description of goods or services provided, quantities/unit prices/extensions, discount terms, and invoice number. Delta College does not pay from statements. Invoices without a purchase order number will be delayed for payment until a purchase order number can be indicated.


Payments are made within 30 days from the receipt of the invoice or as per the payment terms stipulated with the purchase order.

The general policy is to make no prepayments or accept C.O.D.'s.

Delta College has a Standard Response to Credit Applications that can be forwarded to vendors upon request. To request this statement, please call Accounts Payable at 989-686-9233.
