BearBuy

 

BearBuy is UC Berkeley’s web-based marketplace where we go to shop and manage most of our business-related purchases and payments.  Effective March 30, 2015, your BearBuy shopping carts will be processed by Campus Shared Services Business and Financial Services (CSS B&FS).

Office Supplies

There are two contract suppliers for office products – OfficeMax and Give Something Back – and both have catalogs hosted on BearBuy.  If the products you want to buy are not available from these suppliers, contact Berkeley Law Business Services (inquiries@law.berkeley.edu) for assistance.

COMPUTERS, SOFTWARE, AND ACCESSORIES

Consult with Berkeley Law’s IS&T group in advance so they can ensure that the items purchased are compatible with our existing technology.

INK AND TONER CARTRIDGE RECYCLING PROGRAM

When you install a new cartridge, put the used cartridge in the empty bubble sleeve, close the box, and place it in outgoing campus mail.  Funds generated from the cartridge recycling program benefit the entire campus.

FURNITURE, APPLIANCES, AND NON-COMPUTING EQUIPMENT

All furniture, appliances, and non-computing equipment purchases require pre-approval by Building Services (space availability and access, utilities). Appliances and non-computing equipment include (but are not limited to) such items as office refrigerators, microwaves, water coolers, and space heaters.

Ergonomic Furniture and Supplies

Contact Anhara Alexander (aalexander@law.berkeley.edu) if you would like a workstation evaluation and advice on selecting the appropriate ergonomic furniture and other items for your particular needs.
