BuyCarolinaBuyCarolina, a new cloud-based purchasing solution, allows purchasers to comparison shop and make smarter purchasing decisions without having to “punch-out” to each supplier separately and start a new search. Instead of users having to perform separate searches across various suppliers, the system will return all similar products from different suppliers onto the search return screen. Purchasers can then compare items and their prices and select from the supplier they desire.

BuyCarolina allows departmental users to order online from contract vendors and pay electronically. These contract vendors provide deep discounts on UNC-Chapel Hill’s market basket.
