In the past, Accounting & Financial Services provided a number of Procurement and Accounts Payable services, which functioned as many separate moving pieces, each playing an important role in fulfilling the university’s instructional, research and administrative goals. To better support a single process aimed at providing goods and services to UC Davis, we have brought together Accounts Payable, Distribution Services, Procurement & Contracting Services, Repro Graphics, and Travel & Entertainment to form the Supply Chain Management division.

By working together, we can present a coordinated approach to procurement, improve communication, and provide significant value to the university. Under the Supply Chain Management umbrella, I am excited to see these groups continue to provide expert guidance to our customers and foster a sense of pride among our employees.

On behalf of Supply Chain Management, I look forward to providing you an improved experience and appreciate your support as we continue to grow.
