The Hilltop Shop is Here!
What is the Hilltop Shop? The Hilltop Shop is a digital marketplace that will allow the USF community shop in a safe and secure environment. The platform will increase ease of use by eliminating paper requisition and pReqs while also increasing transparency and efficiency to University expenditures. By bringing a digital marketplace to USF it is the leadership's goal to modernize USF in our business process by providing a solution that will speed up transactions and eliminate redundancies.
USF actively seeks strategic sourcing relationships with vendors/suppliers who can offer the highest possible value at the lowest total cost 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.
