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.
