Working with the University of California
The University of California (UC) welcomes suppliers interested in doing business with us and strives to provide fair, open and efficient opportunities for all companies.
UC Procurement is the centralized procurement/supply chain hub for the University of California system. (Purchasing for the Office of the President is done through the UCOP Business Resource Center.)
To participate in UC sourcing events, suppliers must register with CalUsource – our sourcing-to-contract e-procurement platform. In CalUsource, suppliers have the opportunity to participate in systemwide, multi-campus or campus-specific bidding activities.
