Supplier Management

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

Supplier Identification Program

Emory's Strategic 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 across 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 Strategic Procurement's Sourcing Team for further information on how to obtain an Emory ID Badge.

Supplier Code of Ethical Conduct

The Supplier Code of Ethical Conduct provides the foundation for Emory University and its suppliers to build and maintain relationships based on fairness, trust, respect for the rights of individuals, compliance with the law, and sustainable business practices. Our suppliers are critical to our success; therefore, we strive to select suppliers who will maintain a commitment to strong ethical standards.
