Impact Reports

Maximizing value and optimizing spend

Each year, University of California procurement and supply chain teams help administrators, faculty and students purchase billions in goods and services in support of our missions of teaching, research and public service.

While we prioritize campus needs, we are also proud of our sustainable procurement practices and supply chain strategies that leverage UC’s vast purchasing power to optimize spend, resulting in significant savings for the University.
