Survey Aims to Help UW Departments Buy Locally

April 27, 2020

University of Wyoming employees involved in purchasing are invited to take a survey aimed at identifying ways in which UW can help departments buy from Wyoming vendors.

The survey, created by the UW Trademark Licensing Office, is available here:

The survey is part of UW’s BUY-WY initiative, which formalizes the university’s commitment to support Wyoming’s economy.

“I would challenge our university community to find ways in which it can expand the involvement of Wyoming suppliers in its purchasing activities,” Acting President Neil Theobald says. 

The university averages about $600,000 in procurement card purchases each month on general goods, services and contracts. It is estimated that, for every dollar spent locally, the community is positively impacted with an additional 50 cents in economic activity. Even a small increase in purchases by university departments will make a positive impact on Wyoming’s economy.
