Doing Business with KSU

Kentucky State University is currently supported by numerous vendor-partners who provide products and services to support the university's needs. Contract length varies and many have contract renewal options available. The annual renewal and final expiration date for different products are staggered and do not come up for renewal or bid at the same time, or even in the same year, thereby spreading out the time frame for the need to re-bid products and services.

There is not an "approved" KSU vendor list that new vendors can be added to. University contracts are awarded via a competitive bid process. Vendor who are interested in bidding for future contracts should explore current bid opportunities.


Vendors wishing to do business with Kentucky State University must complete and submit a vendor registration form to the University Purchasing Department.  Registering your company will allow the Purchasing Department to process and catalog information about your firm and the goods and services you are able to provide.
