Contracted Vendors

University Wide Contracts are agreements for commodities and services established to benefit the University of Arizona. By using these agreements, departments gain access to discounted pricing and a dedicated support team; as well as assist the University in obtaining benefits such as sponsorships, student initiatives, grant programs, training, professional development and e-procurement initiatives.

Depending on the agreement with each vendor, use of the Purchasing Card (PCard) to pay for items may or may not be allowed. The following list contains the University Wide Contracts and Co-Operative Agreements, and the compatibility with the PCard.

Questions concerning the below contract information may be directed to Ted Nasser, C.P.M., Chief Procurement Officer, at 621-5449 or enasser@email.arizona.edu.
