Procurement and Contract Services

Fraudulent requests

Vancouver Island University’s name has been used in a fraudulent effort to seek quotes, responses and deliveries of equipment to non-VIU locations.  We ask all of our suppliers to confirm verbally with our Procurement staff, should they receive such requests.  Suppliers should only respond to quote requests from VIU’s domain or requests directly posted on the BC Bid website.  Only purchase orders from Procurement staff with the domain ending as “” should be fulfilled.  Thank you for your cooperation.   

What we can do for you

We are your central source for the procurement of goods and services as well as contract activities. Our objective is to provide you the best "value" while reducing cost and risk for VIU. We also process Purchase Requisitions, administer Purchasing Cards, and manage programs such as stationery supplies and disposal of surplus goods.

Where we are

We are located in Building 300 in the Finance area, Nanaimo Campus
