UW BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES
UW Departments and Programs: As a large institution with a decentralized procurement model for smaller purchases and contracts, many of the University’s buying and contracting decisions are made by a host of different departments, programs, and offices. Establishing business relationships with these decision makers is an important step for marketing your business.
