Emory University is a private institution and is recognized internationally for its outstanding liberal arts college, professional schools and a leader in research that generates more research funding than any other Georgia university. 

Supplier Identification Program - Emory's Procurement staff continually strives to meet the needs of the Emory campus in terms of contracting with the best suppliers.  With hundreds of suppliers on and around campus each day it is sometimes hard to identify which supplier has a contractual agreement with Emory (offering special pricing and other favorable terms).  Therefore we ask our preferred contract supplier to participate in wearing Emory ID badges while on campus.  If you are an Emory contracted supplier, please contact Procurement's Strategic Sourcing for further information in reference to obtain an Emory ID Badge.
