  • Copy Paper Announcement:
    • Effective August 10, 2018, orders for standard copy paper should be placed via iProcurement to Staples Advantage.  By ordering through Staples, end users will get office supplies and paper delivered right to your desktop – the previous ordering practice of ordering multiple cases to permit delivery lead time by the UAB Warehouse is no longer necessary.  Order what you need by 3pm and it will be delivered the next business day.  Contact University Purchasing at or 205-934-4515 if assistance is required.

  • NOTICE: Fraudulent purchase order attempts are being made in the name of The University of Alabama at Birmingham.

While the University can not prevent this illegal activity, we are actively working with law enforcement to investigate these fraudulent attempts.
