University Procurement Policies and Procedures
The university has issued several policies related to procurement, including the university's conflict of interest and code of ethics policies, purchasing policies, and procurement card policies. Suppliers and departments should familiarize themselves with these policies before engaging in any university Purchase Orders or contracts.
University Forms (for Suppliers and Departments)
Purchasing Services requires that prospective suppliers complete an on-line Supplier Application Form. (Note: For additional information on becoming a USC supplier, visit: How to do Business at USC.)
