Recharge Process Overview

If you purchase goods and services for your department, use the recharge process to buy from on-campus suppliers.

Note: Use the recharge process only if the campus supplier you wish to buy from is not available through Marketplace.

UCSD encourages you to use on-campus suppliers because they sell goods and services exclusively to support the UCSD Principles of Community.

You can pay these self-supporting suppliers though UCSD's convenient recharge process. Just provide an index at point of purchase. The process assigns the charges directly to your department's ledger. No purchase orders or invoices are involved.

Important things to remember when you use the recharge process:

  • Always check with your fund manager before making a purchase.
  • Request and provide to the fund manager written verification of supplies or services rendered.

To use the recharge process, follow the guidelines in How to Buy Using Recharge.
