Fraud Alert: Someone has been using the university's credit references in an attempt to open accounts with several vendors across the country. The credit reference letter is generally an altered version of the one previously found on our website, and the person(s) refer to themselves as being from the "Regents of the University of California." If you have any suspicion about any contact you receive that indicates it is from UC Davis, please call (530) 752-0370 immediately to confirm.
Sole Source JustificationsA sole source justification is appropriate if only one vendor can provide a needed product or service. When a sole source is requested, a Sole Source Justification and Individual Disclosure Statement must be completed, in addition to the DaFIS Requisition (PR). Each person involved in the recommendation for Sole Sourcing must complete the disclosure form.
Note:The Sole Source Justification must be signed by a chair, director or Principal Investigator, and the title of that person must be indicated on the form. Failure to do this may result in delays processing your order.
Possible justifications for a sole source purchase include:
Note: An unnecessary or poorly justified sole source purchase may result in negative findings and potential loss of funding.
As with other acquisitions, the Purchasing Department will determine that the university is paying a reasonable price.
