Designated Buyers

The following tables list which buyers are responsible for which commodities and departments.

If a department needs a specific commodity, they should contact the buyer for that commodity, not the buyer for that department. For example, if CAS is in need of office moving, CAS should contact Ralph Castiglione who manages the commodity and not Evan Bradford who manages CAS
