University Corporation Purchasing is responsible for all purchases utilizing Corporation funds and is firmly committed to a program of best value. Best value considers transactions from many perspectives, which include: best dollar value, outreach to vendors, promotion of fair and open competition, lifecycle operation requirements, and matching of products and services to the Corporation's needs.

The Corporation encourages that purchases be made from small business and local vendors whenever feasible to help support the local economy, a goal of CSUMB at its inception; including  minority and women-owned business enterprises; and, that purchases be made with energy efficiency, sustainability, and the utilization of earth-minded, renewable (aka "green") products and services.

If you are interested in being added to our list of vendors please fill out a Corporation Vendor Data Packet and fax it to (831) 582-4715.
