The current UC procurement guidelines are vague with respect to sustainability, which is not conducive to sustainable purchasing. The 2016 Housing Team evaluated current procurement practices in the UCLA Housing & Hospitality Services and research sustainable office supplies that are available through the BruinBuy system. The team made recommendations to UCLA H&HS in order to maximize the use of sustainable products on the Hill. Additionally, the team implemented an educational outreach program to inform UCLA staff on the importance of sustainable purchasing.
