ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UC SAN DIEGO

SUBJECT:    Campus Procurement Expo August 1, 2012

You are invited to attend the Campus Procurement Expo (http://www-bfs.ucsd.edu/PUR/CPE/home.htm) at the Price Center Ballroom August 1, 2012 from 10:00-2:30. This eco-friendly and festive event will broadcast a variety of procurement solutions for campus to take advantage of.

The day features a small and disadvantaged businesses showcase in support of sustainable technologies. Employees will have the unique opportunity to meet and engage with local, small and diversity businesses and learn how the products and services these organizations offer contribute to both the University and the San Diego community at large.

The event will also host over 25 procurement workshops (http://www-bfs.ucsd.edu/pur/cpe/WkShop.htm) covering a wide spectrum of purchasing best practices and agreement supplier products/technologies, such as:

      Old to New: I did it in IFIS, how do I do it in Marketplace?

      Business Contracts 101: Welcome to the Jungle

      Is Cloud Computing Real?

      Next Generation Sequencing: New Products and Advances in Sample Prep

In light of the recent transition of FinancialLink Departments Orders/High Value Requisitions into Marketplace, anyone with University purchasing responsibilities is encouraged to attend this event and build their knowledge on how to carry out buying transactions in efficient and effective ways.

We look forward to seeing you on August 1st. Refreshments are included. Take advantage of early-bird registration to participate in a special pre-event drawing for a door prize. To learn more about lunch and other offers, register today!
