Purchasing and Ancillary Services

Purchasing & Ancillary Services (PaAS) facilitates the Source to Pay (S2P) procurement lifecycle for the University through Hilltop Shop. PaAS serves as the central resource for University procurement of goods and services necessary for the effective and efficient operation of all departments. Part of this responsibility is identifying vendors that provide exceptional products and services and who proactively seek out efficient solutions for the University. PaAS strives to maintain and ensure compliance with regulatory guidelines and internal control procedures to conduct business at the highest level of customer service, ethical standards, fairness, and transparency. 


Diversity Statement

USF actively seeks strategic sourcing relationships with vendors that  can offer the highest possible value at the lowest total cost of ownership to USF. We believe diversity increases competition and adds value to USF’s over all procurement strategies. Therefore we reach out to small, minority owned and locally owned businesses to allow an opportunity to participate in USF’s procurement activities.
