Welcome to Procurement Services
Purchasing at the University of Washington
UW eProcurement provides university employees with an intuitive, easy to use interface that makes the purchasing process easier, faster and more cost effective. It’s a single point of entry where faculty and staff go to purchase and manage expenditures for most of their university related purchases.
Most importantly, eProcurement saves the university money by offering the opportunity to purchase from a wide variety of suppliers that offer discounted rates through UW negotiated contracts, and provides an accurate mechanism for keeping track of what is purchased and how much is spent with individual suppliers, thereby improving our ability to negotiate volume discounts.
Purchasing from an eProcurement contracted supplier allows the buyer to purchase at any amount with departmental approval. The direct buy limit DOES NOT APPLY to all eProcurement Catalog purchases. Catalog suppliers listed in the non-contract category in eProcurement are subject to the current direct buy limit of $10,000.
