van in motion

UCSD's purchasing policy establishes guidelines to ensure that all procurement activities are conducted in an ethical manner.

All faculty and staff who do business with UCSD's suppliers must understand and comply with UCSD's policies for responsible buying.

Use the links below to read policies and guidelines for the purchase of goods and services:

The Procurement & Contracts director has the authority to review the conduct of any employee if it could involve non-compliance with the above guidelines. In the course of a review, the Procurement & Contracts director may consult with Human Resources, the Office of Contracts and Grants/ Conflict of Interest, department management, and any other appropriate source.

If the circumstances warrant an independent investigation, policy provides that Audit and Management Advisory Services be notified to conduct an investigation. The results will be reported to the purchasing director and/or other department management.
