About 23C Procurement

As Chief Procurement Officers (CPO), we’re dedicated to driving value and using the collective power of the CSU as one procurement team of 100+ professionals. As we established our 23C Procurement three-year plan we took the time to understand the challenges and opportunities facing our individual campuses. Although we see many headwinds in the future, we found alignment with the setting of 23 goals that will contribute $65 million in value over the next three years. Overall we know we can succeed by working together and growing people who fulfill the vision.
