Approaching UCSC as a Supplier
Summary: This page provides information for supplier who want to market their goods and services to UCSC.
UC Santa Cruz has many decentralized decision-making entities: colleges, divisions, and departments. For many standard supply items, the University negotiates volume discounts with manufacturers and distributors. But for other items, quality, service and specialized inventory are key to meeting the needs of departments and to doing business with UC Santa Cruz.
• Determine who buys your product or service. Target your sales effort to departments likely to need your products.
• Consider searching using the UC Santa Cruz Campus Directory. It contains names, positions, addresses, and telephone numbers of people you may want to contact.
• Contact the Purchasing Department to determine who is responsible for purchasing the product(s) or service(s) you sell.
