Individual Departments have been delegated some purchasing power by the Universitys Purchasing Manager. They assign this power to certain individuals with in the unit. These individuals may procure items of certain value and limited risk for their department. In the new Purchasing system, Gateway, Department Buyers may submit Purchase orders to vendors directly for certain allowable items under $10K. NOTE: any purchases made with Federal money have lower limits ($3,000.00); and higher limits will go through Campus buyers for procurement. Certain Departmental Buyers have a FlexCard (credit card) in their name that they may use to purchase certain allowable items under $5K.
The campus employs three Buyers. The Buyers are responsible for purchasing materials, supplies, equipment, and services, solicit bids, analyze quotations received and recommend suppliers. UCSB and other UC system-wide bids can be viewed on the online Sourcing tool: https://suppliers.sciquest.com/UCOP/https://suppliers.sciquest.com/UCOP/ Professional services agreements/contracts are procured through the Business and Financial Services department of Contracts and Property. These types of agreements will include, but not limited to, editing, translation testing, and speaker agreements. Leases, Easements, rental, and equipment/Loan agreements are also handled through the contracts and Property office.
The Small Business Liaison Officer maintains a process for providing equal access to opportunity for Small Business suppliers and to increase the level of diversity in the Universitys supplier and contractor pools. The Small Business Liaison Officer also prepares subcontracts for federal funded research contracts and grants, by assisting campus project teams to develop small business plans which enable them to achieve specific federal small business utilization goals as directed under FAR Part 19.
Gateway and FlexCard
The online e-procurement system, Gateway, allows Campus Departments to order from a variety of contracted suppliers, non-catalog suppliers, and provides walk-in POs. The campus also utilizes a Procurement Card, called a Flexcard, on our campus, which is a credit card. The card is issued to certain individuals to make purchases, but is paid by the campus.
