Service Alerts

We want to alert you to an active email scam involving purchase orders and email requests for product quotes that purport to originate from UC Davis but are in fact fraudulent. While the university cannot prevent this illegal activity, we are actively working with law enforcement to investigate these fraudulent email contacts. To verify the authenticity of an order, please contact Contracting Services at (530) 752-0370.

Aggie Surplus Rate Change

Aggie Surplus supports sustainability by repurposing excess campus and UCDHS equipment, furniture, and supplies. Previously, a service fee of $59 plus an additional 30% was recharged to each item sold. As a 100% self-supporting unit the cost covered the labor and administrative costs.  Additionally, departments were not charged for the transportation of marketable items to Aggie Surplus. 

The new rate moves to a tiered structure that is listed below. The transportation of items to Aggie Surplus is now performed by Special Services and subject to their quarter-hour rate of $15.75.  Departments will still have the option to deliver items on their own by scheduling in advance with the Aggie Surplus staff. >>Read more...
