Competitive Bidding

In general, it is the practice of the University of California (UC) to meet its need for goods and services at the lowest overall total cost or best value, while affording maximum opportunities to those who wish to become suppliers to the University.

As the dollar value of our purchase transactions increase, policy dictates a requirement to competitively bid and our processes becomes more formal on what needs to occur in procuring good and services.
