For Suppliers

UCI welcomes suppliers interested in doing business with us, and strives to provide fair, open and efficient opportunities for all companies. To participate in bidding activities with UCI, suppliers must register in CalUsource - the shared e-procurement platform for sourcing and contracting being used by California public higher education systems: UC, the California State University (CSU) system, and the California Community Colleges (CCC) system.

Please review UC’s Commitment to Worker Health and Safety during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We appreciate your partnership and value the wellbeing of our entire community.

Fair Work/Fair Wage

If the services your company provides will be performed at a UC Location, your company will be required to pay its employees performing the services no less than the UC Fair Wage ($15/hour).

For services over $100k per year, UCI will work with your company to conduct a UC Fair Wage/Fair Work audit verification. Such audit verifciation must be performed by a regitered public accounting firm*, or your internal audit department who must report to an independent board. Since most local suppliers likely do not have an internal audit department meeting this description, it's highly likely your company will need to use a registrered public accounting firm*.

*Determine if your public accounting firm is registered.
