On June 30, 2017, the Governor signed Public Act 17-130, dubbed the “Cutting the Red Tape” legislation. One purpose of the legislation was to make it easier for UConn to make three types of purchases: “Overseas Purchases,” “Outside Funds Purchases,” and “Collaboration Contract Purchases.” Information about these purchases and the associated policies and procedures is available on our “Cutting the Red Tape” webpage.
As of 5:00 PM EST on October 31, 2017, the period for submitting comments on the drafts of UConn’s new procurement policies is closed.
