Tier2-2: Local Businesses
Procurement and Contract Services
Does the institution give preference to local products and businesses in its purchasing decisions? Local food purchases, which are covered in OP Credit 6: Food Purchasing, are not included in this credit.:
A brief description of the program:
All purchasing at UAF is governed by UA procurement policy. Under section seven of this policy preference is given to businesses in Alaska. Being in Alaska means that it is often difficult to find local products. However, when possible we support whatever local businesses we can.
