Responsible Buying Practices

van in motion

Read guidelines for the appropriate conduct of business for faculty and staff who are involved with the purchase of goods and services.

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

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

The Chief Procurement Officer 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.
