Supply Chain at UConn – Upcoming Efforts

Janitorial Supplies

Effective Wednesday July 17, 2019 departments will now be able to order janitorial supplies on HuskyBuy through university supplier C&C Janitorial Supply. Login to HuskyBuy

As part of a university-wide effort, Central Stores will no longer carry janitorial supplies and departments will now order those supplies through HuskyBuy. Three separate catalogs have been set up: one for the General Campus, one for Dining, and a third for Facility Operations/Residential Life, and only items approved by Supply Chain Management are loaded in each respective catalog. Access to each catalog is dependent on a user’s home department organizational code.

When the catalogs launch, you may see items listed as “Not Available”, which are items not approved for general offices or other areas on campus. We are launching the catalogs in this manner in an effort to get this new supplier showcase to the HuskyBuy marketplace in a timely manner.  Efforts in tandem with our software supplier JAGGAER continue to fine-tune each catalog which will eventually display only those items that are purchasable in each area. For now, pictures and descriptions of all items will be present in all catalogs.

For more information or assistance on ordering supplies, please contact the Supply Chain Management at 860-486-1716

MRO Supplies

MRO (Maintenance, Repairs & Operations) items commonly used by Facilities Operations.  The university is currently working with the preferred vendor Fastenal to manage inventory on-site in a consignment setting with the ability to provide quick turn-around of parts/items needed by the Facilities Operations team.  The effort will focus on efficiency and cost reduction for the university.  The program launched September 2019 and will continue to grow through the Fall of 2019 to include on-site vending machines and point of service sale.  The program is focusing on Facilities Operations now, but is expected to grow to other areas of the campus as the program evolves over the upcoming years.
