The USC Upstate purchasing department operates within the Office of Business Services, providing a full range of purchasing services to the entire campus. We are here to assist you through all stages of your procurement process. From the planning of your purchase, quotation and bidding process, vendor selection, purchase processing requirements, through the tracking and delivery. Our goal is to provide professional purchasing services to meet the needs of the academic and administrative departments of the University at the lowest possible cost.

We hope you will find valuable and timely information that will assist you in understanding business processes that support and meet all of your procurement requirements here at Upstate.


NEW!!   Research Participant Card Program is now available!

The Controller’s Office is excited to announce a new Research Participant Card Program which will allow for anonymous prepaid debit cards for payments to research participants.  These cards will be issued through Bank of America and can be loaded with values from $5-$100 and there is no fee to the department for card activation.  We are hopeful that this will alleviate the need for so many cash advances for gift cards for your research programs.  

 Information regarding the Research Participant Card Program can be found on the Controller’s Office website later this afternoon.  If you have a specific need at this time, please contact the Controller’s Office at participantcard@sc.edu.
