Strategic Sourcing

What is Strategic Sourcing?

It is a UC systemwide collaborative effort to increase customer satisfaction by enhancing product quality and service levels, while leveraging UC buying power to significantly lower total costs. The Strategic Sourcing Program uses the joint purchasing power of all the UC campuses, medical centers, and labs to obtain substantial pricing discounts from regional and national suppliers of commonly used commodities. More about the systemwide strategic sourcing effort can be found on the UC Procurement site.

The local Strategic Sourcing group provides the following, to ensure success of the program on our campus:

  • Local Area Strategic Sourcing
  • UCD Buy agreement coordination
  • UC Davis Small Business Program coordination
  • UC Strategic Sourcing coordination

To get complete results, be sure that Show Chartwide Agreements and Show Campuswide Agreements are checked. Click on the Schedule This Query button and receive regular agreement updates directly to your e-mail In Box!

Using Strategic Sourcing Agreements

You can purchase against many of the systemwide agreements through UCD Buy.
