The Purchasing Office is responsible for awarding all contracts and purchases made by the University. We issue Invitation for Bids/Quotes and Requests for Proposals which are processed into Purchase Orders and Contracts for different goods and services. A Requisition must be submitted to the Purchasing Department to request any goods or services via PeopleSoft CFS Finance.
We also offer the Procurement Card (P-Card) which is a more simplified procurement process for low dollar supply purchases only. Please contact Accounts Payable for information on how to obtain a P-Card.
CSUBUY is replacing the existing CSU Campus Marketplace.
This is the first step in transforming the way the CSU manages the Procure-to-Pay process. This change to a new platform will create a foundation for future implementation of automated workflow, requisitioning, purchase orders, and AP functionality through integration into CFS and Oracle.
Initially, all current Campus Marketplace users will be moving to the new platform. Over time as new functionality is made available, other stakeholders will benefit.
The target go-live date for existing Campus Marketplace users is June 1, 2020.
Updates will be provided as we move closer to the roll-out date.
CSU, East Bay Procurement & Support Services Department is responsible for acquisition of all supplies, equipment, and services for the University. This department is the only office on campus that has the authority to commit purchases and contracts on behalf of the University. No legal commitment of State funds exists without the authority of Procurement & Support Services.
CSU, East Bay WILL NOT be responsible for purchases or other commitments made by individuals who do not have a University-authorized purchase order or contract number. Please do not release merchandise without a purchase order number or perform services without a contract number or fully executed contract.
If assistance is provided to a department in developing bid specifications, designs, layouts, etc., please be aware that it will not guarantee a sale or contract. Award of an order or contract will be made to the lowest responsible bidder meeting specifications. All specifications will be carefully reviewed by Procurement & Support Services to eliminate undue restrictions that would limit competition.
It is the objective of CSU, East Bay to obtain high quality products and services at the best possible price. The highest ethical principles are followed by employees involved in the procurement process. Under no circumstance may vendor/contractor gifts or gratuities be offered in an effort to influence an award.
