1. Important Purchasing and Payment Changes Coming on December 1, 2015. 

The Controller's Office & Supply Chain Management is transitioning to an electronic procure-to-pay environment to streamline processes and provide better contract pricing for our campus. As part of this effort, we will implement the following changes effective December 1, 2015:
  • Changes to standard payment terms for suppliers that receive Purchase Orders
  • Changes to allowable Payment Request Form usage
  • All campus event catering must be purchased through America-to-Go
  • Services purchases require a Purchase Order and should not be paid using a p-card
Additional details about the changes above are available on the Supply Chain Management website. Please carefully review the information on the webpage to best prepare for the upcoming changes.
If you have questions on:
  • Invoices and the Payment Request Form, contact the Controller's Office Solution Center at COSolutionCenter@ucsf.edu or 415-476-2126.
  • Payment terms, America -to-Go, P-Card and other vendor inquiries, contact Supply Chain Management at vendors@ucsf.edu.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Q: How do I change my BearBuy role?
