Milwaukee Area Technical College



The mission of the MATC Procurement Department is to equitably acquire materials and services at the lowest cost and best overall value to the College.

In accomplishing these tasks, we are committed to the following:

  • Acting professionally and ethically
  • Employing fair and object price competition and negotiation practices to secure the best value for the College involving the use of public funds.
  • Leveraging technology for competitive advantage.
  • Investing in training and professional development of staff.
  • Networking with other colleges and purchasing associations for cooperative purchasing.
  • Adhering to the Wisconsin Financial and Administrative procurement guidelines.
  • Ensuring College assets are properly accounted for in their receipt and disposition by standards of the Wisconsin Technical College System and through best business practices.
  • The MATC Procurement Department subscribes to the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) Code of Ethics, and those principles governing the activities and conduct of the division.

Milwaukee Area Technical College is an urban based institution, with a strong commitment to diversity to reflect the community it serves. That commitment extends to all parts of the college not only in hiring practices of our faculty and staff, but also in collaborations and support of Milwaukee area businesses, including Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB)

It is the policy of MATC that Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB; typically minority, women and business enterprises owned and/or employed by individuals with disabilities) shall have the maximum opportunity to participate in the performance of contracts or purchases. To this extent MATC encourages minority, women and business enterprises owned and/or employed by individuals with disabilities to respond to all bids and/or requests for proposals as a primary supplier of goods or services requested.

MATC encourages participation of MBE, DBE or WBE organizations in the provision of Professional Services for the institution.
