Purchasing

Available Contracts/Sourcing

Using Contracts 

USF is able to make use of the contracts of other agencies who have conducted a formalized quote process such as a public solicitation, RFP, ITN or ITB.  This makes using contracts one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to make purchases for commodities and services!  
The resources below link to existing public contracts that cover a wide variety of services and commodities. 

For documentation, a copy of the contract should always be attached to the requisition request along with the contract number and/or weblink, and the quote should reference the pricing agreement or contract number. 

For help with sourcing, please Contact Us.


USF CONTINUING SERVICE AGREEMENTS 

The list below contains suppliers for a number of commodity and service categories who have been awarded contracts through USF Public Solicitation Events, or where USF has contracted directly with a supplier publically sourced by other government agencies.  A USF contract number should be referenced for PO's.

Cooperative Contracts  

Cooperative contracts are widely-used competitively bid agreements between the government and suppliers to lower the costs of procuring goods or services that higher education institutions commonly need. When the contract and procurement process is shared the result is lower administrative costs so suppliers can offer greater discounts on commodities/services.  Departments also spend less time searching for quotes.  

Cooperatives carry contracts on a variety of resources including office peripherals, laboratory and other equipment and maintenance supplies and technology peripherals.
