How to Navigate Supplier Terms and Conditions


This article demonstrates how to navigate Supplier Terms and Conditions.

Essential Information

Next Steps

  1. Review the Suppliers document. A quote with a signature line at the bottom doesn't mean UC needs to sign.
  2. Send the Supplier an email with the UCOP Terms and Conditions Blink page.
  3. If the Supplier is adamant, please submit a Service and Support ticket.
  4. Within the ticket please include the following for expedited service:
    1. Oracle requisition number
    2. Supporting documentation showing the Supplier knows UCs stance and still wishes to have their papers signed.
    3. Supplier contact information
    4. Supplier's document requiring signature.
  5. A Professional Buyer will review the requisition amount, previous POs issued, and documentation included to provide a solution:
    1. Procurement & Contracts specialists (Professional Buyers) have delegation of authority and can review the document, assist in negotiation, as well as sign the document.
    2. Professional Buyers understand possible areas of disagreement and can negotiate with the Supplier to come to a mutual agreement for complex, highly sensitive procurements where risk must be minimized, if deemed appropriate.
