Purchasing & Donations

At the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, procurement of all goods and services must be made in adherence to the Procurement Rules set by the Board of Regents.  Procurement rules, procedures, and forms can be found on the Procurement Service Center's (PSC) website here.

Pursuant to Section 24-101-105 of the C.R.S., on January 20, 2005, the Board of Regents adopted a resolution exempting the University of Colorado from the State of Colorado Procurement Code and Rules to be effective July 1, 2005. Employees who purchase goods and/or services, as well as those involved in the purchasing process for UCCS are bound by the Procurement Code of Ethics.

As a public institution of higher education, the University of Colorado Colorado Springs is exempt by law, from all federal excise taxes and from all Colorado State and local government sales and use taxes when purchasing goods and/or services in the conduct of official University business. Tax exemption information for UCCS may be found here

The university utilizes two core procurement systems: CU Marketplace (an eProcurement system that enables online shopping for a multitude of vendors) and Concur (a system to book travel, reconcile Procurement Cards aka P-Cards, and process travel reimbursements).
