COVID-19 Supplies Guide

As UVA considers how the Commonwealth's phase reopening plans will affect our eventual return to Grounds, Procurement & Supplier Diversity Services is working to make ordering and distribution of personal protective equipment, cleaning supplies and services, and other related items easier and more cost-effective for all.

Important Information for Purchasing COVID Supplies

  • Certain items are being purchased centrally for University use. If you're planning large-scale orders, aren't sure how to proceed, or have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to Procurement. Email our COVID response team (note: this email address goes to a shared Teams channel - it is a valid University address).
  • Err on the side of caution - there are many unvetted suppliers offering either non-existent product, or price gouging. Procurement & Supplier Diversity Services is here to help advise you on these purchases.
