UCIBuy is UCI’s eProcurement system with over 40 supplier catalogs featuring office, computer, laboratory, health, janitorial and maintenance/repair/operations products
As participation in the UCIBuy platform is license based, the following criteria is used to determine the supplier pipeline:
- Existence of a UC Systemwide or Campus Agreement: UCI Procurement and Strategic Sourcing consider existing purchasing agreements at University of California (UC Systemwide) or at the local UCI campus as important criteria. Local Agreements at other UC campus locations are also taken into consideration.
- Availability of eContent: If supplier has the ability to provide catalog eContent through JAGGAER (ePro platform that powers UCIBuy) or is already actively supplying eContent at another UC institution, UCI can leverage those existing relationships.
- Amount of Spend and Transactions: Suppliers offering products that are in high demand by campus clients and departments are more likely to negotiate a presence in UCIBuy. Our Strategic Sourcing and Procurement team runs scheduled reports, analyzing data for existing spend and identifying key commodity gaps which translate into catalog opportunities for suppliers.
- Campus/Employee Feedback: Our team welcomes campus clients to communicate supplier recommendations, feedback and department needs for general or specific commodities. We also assess direct requests made by suppliers and prefer as much background spend and data be provided. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A catalog presence in UCIBuy is not required to conduct business at UCI; however, if you are not a current UCI Supplier, please refer to the instructions on Registering as a UCI Supplier first. After being successfully on-boarded as a UCI Supplier, you can contact UCI Procurement Services for further evaluation.
