Procurement

Working from Home: Procurement

  1. Check-in with your supervisor and unit CAO.
    Work together to determine the best course of action for procuring items. Supervisor/CAO can determine if the item(s) being procured fall under the UC Regents Policy 5402. (Applicable for services - see https://foa.ucdavis.edu/contracting-out)
  2. Is the item I need available in the office?
    Items that are normally available in the office may be obtained from the office. 
    Confirm with your supervisor/department leadership that visiting the office is allowable and necessary.

  3. Is the item I need available on AggieBuy - AND - Is the item something I would still need if I were working from the office?
    After confirming with you supervisor/leadership, order through AggieBuy and can be shipped directly to your home.

  4. Is the item I need available to buy with a Procurement Card?
    If the item is not available through AggieBuy, contact your department’s Procurement Cardholder to assist you with the purchase. 
    A Travel (Corporate) card is NOT a Procurement card.

  5. Is the item I need available to buy with a University Purchase Order?
    Use Online PrePurchasing or contact your department’s business office for assistance. If the item is not available through AggieBuy, the supplier does not accept the Procurement card, or the P-card is not allowable, you’ll need a Purchase Order to complete the transaction.
