Procurement Office is a service unit dependent upon the cooperation
and assistance of all University units and departments in
order to be the most benefit to the University.
Administration believes that successful procurement can best
be performed by a single department which specializes in this
field and which works in cooperation with other units and
State agencies in making purchases. Within the University,
therefore, the responsibility for the procurement of supplies,
materials, equipment and contractual services is placed in
the University Procurement Office. The University Procurement
Office has sole responsibility, within the University, for
negotiating, preparing, executing or recommending execution,
awarding and administering all contracts, purchase orders
and rental agreements which involve expenditures for supplies,
materials, equipment and contractual services. The University
Procurement Office is the University's only channel of contact
with the State Purchasing Division and with the Georgia Technology
Authority. We are responsible for coordination of all University
procurement activities with appropriate State agencies.
The effective date for implementation of Uniform Guidance, 2 CFR Part 200, Procurement Standards regulations at the University of Georgia will be fiscal year 2018. The University will follow Procurement Standards regulations as specified in OMB Circular A-110, 2 CRF Part 215 through June 30, 2017, as provided in the November 2014 COFAR Frequently Asked Questions and updated in the Federal Register 9/10/15 universal identifier and system of award management corrections.
