Agreements & Blankets

Purchasing is easy when you use a list of suppliers with goods and services at established University prices.


BruinBuy - Purchase Online

This e-procurement system allows users to buy products for the University from a variety of vendors.

Credit & Debit Cards

Use for purchases of less than $5,000 on nonrestricted items, such as travel, entertainment and food.


Buying on eBay

It's easy to buy online at eBay and other websites using the Pcard. Here are some caveats.

Low-Value Orders

Fast way for departments to make purchases of up to $5,000 without going through Campus Purchasing.
