Supply Chain Management (SCM) facilitates the procurement and distribution processes for goods and services across campus.  SCM provides general purchasing consultation and advice; sources, evaluates and qualifies suppliers, as well as prepares and issues all requests for supplier qualifications, requests for quotations, requests for information, requests for proposals and tenders.  SCM works in conjunction with Legal Services, Risk and IT to draft and negotiate contracts with suppliers.  Within Alberta, the legislation that must be followed for procurement of goods and services falls under the New West Partnership Trade Agreement (NWPTA –  The master data for suppliers is maintained and housed by our Suppliers team in SCM.

The University of Calgary is committed to integrating sustainability into all aspects of its campus operations.  Supply Chain Management integrates sustainability into the purchasing processes for all applicable product and service categories.  To become a preferred supplier of the University of Calgary, suppliers are required to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability.  The evaluation process used to select preferred suppliers favours those whose commitment to sustainability aligns with the University's institutional values.  Sustainability is also subsequently integrated into the contracts the university holds with preferred suppliers.

As part of the purchasing team, SCM provides a corporate card service to the University.  The official corporate card for the University is Scotiabank Visa program.

Finally, our Distribution Services team is available to the campus to transport goods that are first delivered to the central loading dock in the Physical Plant, and then shipped to different locations.  Other areas that are within Distribution Services include Customs and Traffic, Inventory Management, Postal Services, and Furnishings/Disposal Services.
