With the development and expansion of universities, higher demand in office supplies, constructions, and services lead to more procurements, together with high requirements on tendering and procurement. In order to solve the problems of increasing number of applications, process being too complex and low efficiency in the tendering and procurement of colleges and universities, a design model and overall structure of a workflow-based university procurement information management system is proposed here, and key technologies for the tendering and procurement process of colleges and universities are developed. Integration of procurement budgeting, planning, tasks design, execution, contracts, acceptance check, and payment is achieved. Such system is proved to provide effective support for tendering and procurement and improvement in management efficiency through the practical application of such system in the domestic universities.
