Environmentally Preferred Purchasing

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.
