Sinclair College


Purchasing works directly with the Planning & Construction (P&C) department in the bidding, requisition and contracting of construction projects for all Sinclair locations. Purchasing posts Requests for Qualifications (RFQ), schedules and participates in pre-bid meetings and bid openings, collects and announces bids, processes purchase orders, and forwards Notices of Commencement to contractors to initiate construction projects.

As required, Purchasing will seek approval for projects and funding from the State Controlling Board and the Attorney General. Purchasing follows Ohio construction law as set forth by the Ohio Revised Code (ORC), and utilizes the Local College Project guidelines provided by the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC).
