Supplier Information

TO OUR VALUED VENDORS AND SUPPLIERS

To mitigate the spread of COVID-19 our Procurement and Accounts Payable teams have transitioned to a remote working environment, working primarily from home offices. This will affect (delay) the processing of payments from paper invoices. To avoid delays, effective immediately, please submit all invoices via email. Staff will be working remotely to continue processing payments that are received via email.

Payments will continue by ACH and check. However, if you have not already done so, you are encouraged to sign up for ACH payment to ensure prompt payment. Please submit invoices to invoices@sandiego.edu. Add all relevant Purchase Order/Contract Number(s) to facilitate processing of your invoice.

We thank you for your understanding and support during this challenging time. We value our relationship with our vendors and suppliers and look forward to our partnership well into the future

 

For Suppliers

The Procurement Services department provides assistance to all departments in the procurement of products and services to support the overall USD goals of advancing academic excellence, expanding liberal and professional knowledge, creating a diverse and inclusive community and preparing leaders who are dedicated to ethical conduct and compassionate service. In keeping with these goals, and the overall standard of excellence associated with the University of San Diego, Procurement Services works closely with the University’s supplier community on a daily basis.

An integral part of that work is ensuring all qualified businesses seeking to establish a business relationship with the University have that opportunity.

How We Conduct Business

Procurement Services has implemented a Strategic Sourcing Initiative that is designed to maximize the purchasing power of the University. In so doing we seek to contract with suppliers in numerous products and service areas. The results of these contracts are significant cost savings to the University, improved levels of customer service to University departments, and increased volume with contracted suppliers.

Procurement Services will work closely with suppliers to monitor contracts and contract utilization and measure the value of these contracts to the University. Please contact Procurement Services at procurement@sandiego.edu for assistance.
