phase 2: vendor deactivation program

To continuously improve the Supplier Search functionality when using certain BearBuy forms, the BearBuy Team plans to deactivate suppliers who have not done business with UC Berkeley in the last 18 months. It has been determined that if the Campus has not paid or issued a Purchase Order to a supplier in over 18 months, they are either unlikely to have future business or they have changed to a different entity.  The BearBuy Team has identified about 17,435 suppliers with no activity during this time frame.

In the event a department or Campus Buyer needs to have a supplier reactivated for ordering, please have the supplier:

  • Fax the form to Vendoring (510) 642-8604.
