About Corporate Procurement

Corporate Procurement is empowered by the Board of Directors of the Johns Hopkins Health System (JHHS) via the President of the Health System. This authority to act as an agent of the Health System in procurement matters is under the direction of the Vice President of Supply Chain and the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for the Health System.

Corporate Procurement, as an agent for the Johns Hopkins Health System, is solely responsible for all bidding, contracting, negotiation and procurement of all supplies, equipment and services required for providing excellent patient care and maintaining the operations in a timely and cost effective manner.

Further clarification defined: supplies (defined as, consumables, asset inventory, direct purchases, department supplies), capital and minor equipment, leases and rentals, service contracts, parts and accessories, and services.

Corporate Procurement is solely authorized to commit Health System funds for any purchase.

Commitment for funds is accomplished by issuing a purchase order guided by the Johns Hopkins Health System Financial Policies. Unauthorized requests and receipt of goods are not considered binding, nor will respective invoices be paid, without a corresponding purchase order and receiving report. JHHS employees will be personally liable for the unauthorized ordering, receipt and use of items.
