Welcome to Procurement

The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) is operated by Princeton University under contract to the United States Department of Energy (USDOE). PPPL is the only USDOE laboratory fully dedicated to the research and development of fusion as a safe and virtually inexhaustible energy alternative.

PPPL is an autonomous organization within the Princeton University structure. The Director of PPPL reports to the University Dean for Research. PPPL regular staff members are Princeton University employees, but the Laboratory community includes a significant and dynamic mix of graduate students; visiting faculty and staff from universities, DOE laboratories, and foreign research organizations; subcontractor employees; and consultants.

The Procurement Division is part of the PPPL Business Operations Office. PPPL Procurement is functionally independent from the Princeton University Purchasing Office, but maintains a liaison with main campus. The PPPL purchasing system is reviewed and approved by the USDOE in accordance with the provision of Prime Contract No. DE-AC02-09CH11466.

The PPPL Procurement Division purchases the goods and services needed to operate the Laboratory. Our staff has a diversity of backgrounds and a wealth of experience in the purchasing field. We promote excellence through continuous training and membership in professional groups such as the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) or the Institute for Supply Management (ISM). We encourage our staff to seek and maintain professional certification through these organizations.
