Fraud Alert! We have received reports of fraudulent purchase orders being placed that appear to be connected to UNC. If you are a vendor or campus unit and need to validate whether or not a purchase order is a legitimate one from UNC, contact purchasing_team@unc.edu. Please do not assume an error or ignore it. If you are a vendor and suspect you are the victim of a fraud attempt, contact your local authorities to file a police report. We appreciate your diligence in this matter.

Purchasing Services provides supply management support to University departments, with responsibility for the procurement of goods and services in excess of $540 million annually. For purchases over $5,000 and equipment trades and transfers, see also eProcurement and Materials Management.

All goods and services should be purchased using one of the University’s procurement systems: eProcurement, University storerooms or directly from the vendor using a purchasing card, purchase order, campus voucher or requisition. The Purchasing Method Selection Tool PDF (Onyen required) can help when deciding which purchasing method is most appropriate.

This department reports to Procurement and Strategic Operations.

Revisions of Waiver of Competition Policy, Procedure and Form

October 15, 2021

In order to streamline the process of requesting a waiver for competition and increase internal controls with our auditing processes, the Department of Purchasing Services has revised 1232.1.1f – Customer Request for a Brand/Specific Waiver of Competition to allow for space in the form to include the statement of justification. This will eliminate the need to submit a separate justification memo on department letterhead.
