Personal Protective Equipment & COVID-19 Supplies 

With stronger supply chains and availability of PPE from CU Strategic Suppliers, CU Boulder, CU Denver, and UCCS campuses are able to make purchases as they “normally” would through our Marketplace suppliers.


All Anschutz campus purchasers should continue to purchase from the “Anschutz PPE/Gloves” section in Marketplace. This can be found at the top of the page along with other listed Categories.

We purchased inventory at the peak of the pandemic and all departments should be purchasing via this section until that inventory is gone. This benefits the departments because our large purchase allowed us to buy PPE at lower pricing than what is currently available on the market. Questions and requests can be sent to .

Thankfully pricing has somewhat normalized and our strategic and catalog suppliers have ample supply of PPE available. We encourage you to purchase PPE through suppliers like Fisher Scientific, Staples, Henry Schein Inc, McKesson, and Medline. Departments, besides Anschutz, are welcome to purchase from any supplier they choose within the thresholds of our purchasing requirements. There is no longer an Emergency Procurement allowance for bypassing competitive bid requirements.

The PSC is here to support any purchasing needs or issues that may arise with the purchase of PPE and COVID Supplies. Please reach out to PSC@CU.Edu with any questions or requests and we will be happy to assist you.
