CruzBuy - Resuming Order Processing
​On September 8, 2020, the campus post-fire building assessment was completed and Mail & Receiving Services are up and running. All Cruzbuy requests can now be submitted

The reduction in requests allowed Procurement and the Mail and Receiving staff to focus on urgent/immediate issues critical to the fire response. Any non-urgent requests that were submitted between August 20, 2020, and September 8, 2020, along with any new requests, will be processed by procurement as soon as possible on a first come first serve basis. Please be aware that processing times may increase depending on the amount of requests received.

If you have any questions about mail/packages please contact receiving@ucsc.edu.​​​ ​

Notice to Vendors: Fraudulent Purchase Order Email Activity
We want to alert you to an email scam involving fraudulent purchase orders and requests for product quotations purporting to originate from UC Santa Cruz. While the university cannot prevent this illegal action, we are actively working to inform our suppliers of this on-going activity. Common features of these supplier-targeted counterfeit UCSC orders include:
  • The email message is poorly written, with misspellings and awkward sentence structure
  • Orders start with an e-mail inquiry asking for a quote for a small order followed by a subsequent request for a larger order
  • The order designates a Ship-To address that is not a UCSC facility or indicates the product will be picked up at the supplier’s premises
  • Invalid contact information, such as email addresses using deceptive extensions; e.g. @ucsantascruz.com or @ucsc.mygbiz.com
  • The message may include an attachment designed to look like a purchase order, and it may include a logo or other graphic, and in some cases, a signature
  • Please note that the university’s internet address is www.ucsc.edu and it is not our practice to ask our suppliers to ship to addresses that are not UCSC campus facilities. It is also not our practice to place orders for merchandise that will be picked up at supplier premises
  • The request lists the address of UC Office of the President in Oakland, which is not a UCSC address
  • The request includes the title of Procurement Chancellor, which is a fictitious position
If you believe you have received a fraudulent order or quotation request, you may forward it to UCSC Procurement Services at buy4me@ucsc.edu to verify the communication’s legitimacy before responding. You may also contact the Procurement Services department by telephone at: 831-459-2311.
