At this time no formal documentation is available with regard to the use of LCCA in purchasing evaluation. However, one of Business Services primary responsibilities is to apply principles of value analysis to the purchasing process in order to obtain the best quality for the price and delivery within the desired time frame. They continue to work closely with various schools and departments to proactively negotiate new contracts that have generated substantial cost savings across the University. Initiatives to achieve cost effectiveness and provide tactical price structures with strategic vendor partners have succeeded and have been realized campus-wide. New initiatives and further cost-reduction opportunities will continue to be examined to effectively address the University's growing needs.
