When considering the purchase of services, it is recommended to reach out to UBC approved suppliers listed on these pages.
They are Approved Suppliers that have been awarded a contract by Financial Operations for use by all departments and faculties at UBC. These are some of the benefits you will receive when you use an approved supplier:
- Saves time and effort as a competitive process (RFx) is not required when using these suppliers
- Delivers best overall value to the University based on price, quality, and delivery capabilities, training and ease of ordering
- Reduces contractual risks as UBC has the capability to better hold these vendors accountable for below standard service delivery
- Favorable contractual terms and conditions
- Establishes clear conflict resolution processes
- Improves access to information
