Doing Business with USF
Purchasing & Ancillary Services (PAAS) serves as a central resource for university procurement of goods and services necessary for the effective and efficient operation of schools and departments. PAAS strives to maintain and ensure compliance with regulatory guidelines and internal control procedures, to conduct business with the highest level of customer service, ethical standards, fairness, and transparency while welcoming qualified, responsible, diverse, and “green” vendors.
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.
