UC Procurement Resources and Programs

UC Procurement = Systemwide

UC Procurement is the centralized procurement/supply chain hub for the University of California system. We work across the system to establish systemwide agreements for goods and services that are commonly purchased at University locations throughout the state.

Systemwide agreements are created through a competitive RFP and award process that considers the business requirements and policies of the University, along with the quality and price of goods and services. Please see the Systemwide Contracts webpages for UC Procurement systemwide contacts listed by commodity categories.

Local Procurement (UCOP) | Campus Procurement

For Office of the President (UCOP) business purchasing, please contact Local Procurement within the UCOP Business Resource Center.

For specific campus purchasing, please contact local campus procurement teams: Campus Procurement Directories
