The University has adopted a new guideline as it pertains to the purchase of bottled water coolers. The guideline helps promote sustainability and cost containment values, and brings the University in alignment with practices at other State of Connecticut agencies as previously established by the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) pertaining to bottled water purchasing. For additional information, please contact Kristin Allen in Procurement Services at 860-486-0970 email@example.com.
HuskyBuy is now ready for the processing of FY20 Blanket Orders
Current Blanket Orders may be carried over to be used in the next fiscal year unless a new PO is required due to the funding source (such as grant-based sponsor requirements), specific contract terms, bidding threshold limitations or your individual department’s fiscal processes.
In order to improve your experience with us, University Business Services will be hosting several Town Hall meetings to obtain customer feedback regarding multiple topics such as your HuskyBuy experience, the new Concur Travel & Expense solution, your perspective on what we are doing well and what we are not doing so well.

7/17 2:00p.m. - 3:00p.m.
