Procurement Services

UNF Supplier Portal

Procurement Services is excited to announce the recent (January '21) implementation of the UNF Supplier Portal. All new vendors/suppliers who wish to do business with the University will now register via the Portal. The Portal is located on the Supplier Resources tab of the Procurement Services webpage and replaces the former paper Vendor Application. Completion of the registration process is required to do business with the University, unless a payee is one of the following:

  • UNF Student or Prospective UNF Student
  • UNF Employee or Prospective UNF Employee
  • Refund Recipient

UNF Vendors of record prior to implementation of the UNF Supplier Portal are being contacted by email and "invited" to update their vendor/supplier information. That email invitation will come from UNF@sciquest.com and will clearly reflect UNF's Supplier Registration Team contact information (supplierhelp@unf.edu; (904) 620-2730).

 

For more information about the UNF Supplier Portal, see Supplier Resources and/or direct questions to supplierhelp@unf.edu.

Supplier Webinar

In January, Procurement Services launched an online system to simplify supplier registration and bid submission. Staff will walk participating suppliers through each portal and address questions.

Dianna White Retires

After 13 ½ years of service to UNF, Dianna White, UNF's Senior Buyer in charge of capital projects, MRO and much of the University's facility related acquisitions retired effective January 8, 2021. Her efforts are visible throughout UNF's campus as she leaves behind a legacy of beautiful buildings, forward thinking furnishings and campus friendly walkways/roadways. A quiet champion for the end user, she approached every University project/acquisition with an eye towards acquiring products that maximized departmental financial resources while lasting for generations to come. On behalf of the University, Procurement Services, Thanks Dianna for her service to UNF and wishes her well in her retirement!

COVID-19 Update

The University of North Florida (UNF) is committed to taking all appropriate measures to ensure the safety of the University community in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Vendor/Suppliers, their employees/agents and visitors to UNF are reminded that all persons who come onto/enter UNF's campus or any other premises controlled, owned, or operated by the University must comply with the University's Coronavirus Safety Policy.

 

Please note that, among other conditions, University policy requires: self-screening, use of face coverings, social distancing and compliance with CDC guidance on personal hygiene. Vendors/suppliers and their employees/agents should be well familiar with the University's expectations regarding COVID-19 Safety Policy compliance before entering an UNF property/premise.

 

In addition, because we value the health and safety of our vendors/suppliers and their employees/agents, until further notice, any meetings and/or bid related sessions scheduled will likely be remote via Zoom/Teams. Vendors should only be on-campus if they have an appointment to engage in an on-site meeting with a specific University employee. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

 

For more information, please visit UNF's COVID-19 webpage.
