Purchasing and Reimbursements

About Purchasing and Reimbursements

ProS provides support to the UC Berkeley campus with Purchasing services and assistance with select travel and entertainment reimbursements.

You can purchase most goods and services through BearBuy, the University’s procurement system. New BearBuy users are encouraged to take the BearBuy: Basics for Shoppers trainingPlease note that the GlobalProtect VPN is required to access BearBuy off-campus.

Effective July 1, 2021, faculty and staff must submit all reimbursement requests directly in the Reimbursement System.

Effective July 26, 2021, Supply Chain Management retired the Campus Shared Services form previously used to reimburse students and vendors for travel and entertainment expenses.

To reimburse vendors for travel expenses, departments can submit requests in the Reimbursement System. To reimburse vendors for entertainment expenses, submit requests in BearBuy on the Payment Request form. UC Berkeley employees responsible for submitting reimbursements in the Reimbursement System on behalf of other payees can request Travel and Entertainment Preparer Access via sara.berkeley.edu.
