Locating Business Opportunities

Vendors wishing to do business with the university should keep updated on solicitation opportunities. The UNLV Purchasing Department solicits formal solicitations based on the categories and dollar thresholds listed on the Competitive Threshold Requirements section. All formal solicitations are announced in the legal advertisement section of the newspaper and on the Purchasing website.

Marketing to Campus Departments

Vendors may market products directly to departmental personnel. Since campus departments determine which supplies, equipment, or services to purchase and are instrumental in initiating specifications for the equipment, supplies, and/or services they require, marketing contacts are recognized as a necessary part of educating users on the capabilities and varieties of products in the marketplace. Unexpected or unsolicited calls are not encouraged. Every effort should be made to make an appointment with the appropriate department personnel prior to your visit. Note: Vendors must obtain a valid purchase order number before providing goods and services to the university.
