Our Business Ethics

Since Mt. SAC is a state-funded institution, there are a number of required procurement procedures and processes that must be adhered to by both the College and prospective vendors who want to provide goods and services. Under state law, the Mt. SAC Board of Trustees has the ultimate responsibility for all purchases and contracts. The College’s purchasing philosophy is to maintain professional relationships with all vendors.

Vendors are free to advertise and contact our various departments directly. However, your promotional efforts should not include gifts, favors, or any form of personal gratuities to any College personnel.
