Purchasing at UCLA is decentralized. For business opportunities below $100,000, you will be invited to participate in the bidding process as opportunities present themselves.
For business opportunities over $100,000, browse postings on UCLA Public Bidding Site. Registration is free on CalUsource.
For many commodity-type items and equipment, we may use a Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) such as Vizient (formerly Novation, typically for health-related products and equipment) or E&I, the Educational & Institutional purchasing cooperative, to source our contracts and those vendors would be added into our system.
