Partner with USF


USF employs a de-centralized Purchasing Model. Colleges and Departments determine needs and, using various vendor identification resources, obtain quotes for a variety of commodities and services.

Businesses may submit a Vendor Application to be added to a database of potential vendors. When a vendor completes the vendor application, the vendor is added to the Vendor Database and, if appropriate, the Minority, Women & Veteran Business Enterprise Vendor Database. These databases are two of the identification resources utilized at the USF. Vendors on the databases are also notified of public solicitations when there is a commodity or service match.
