Making smart and environmentally friendly purchasing is an important part of mitigating USC’s environmental impact. Some of the efforts to improve purchasing practices include:
Local and Historically Underutilized Business Consultant Focus
Procurement Services collaborates with the Small Business Diversity Office (SBDO) to reach the university’s goal to procure, regardless of source of funds, 15% of all purchases with diverse suppliers, including women, minority, and veteran-owned businesses.
USC Hospitality purchases 20% of its food from sustainable sources.
