Programs & Initiatives

Learn About New and Ongoing Programs and Initiatives 

In support of our overall strategic plan, Integrated Procure-to-Pay Solutions (IPPS) continues to support several key initiatives. Each program or initiative is spearheaded by an IPPS team comprised of staff members from across all IPPS units. Team members selected which initiative(s) to join based on their own interests and career goals rather than their current role within IPPS. Structuring the initiatives in this way upholds our department's integrated model and empowers teams throughout IPPS to explore and develop cross-functional talents in a supportive, collaborative environment that inspires innovative solutions.

Logistics 2.0 (L2.0) Carbon Neutral Last Mile

Conduct a feasibility study that explores solutions for creating a fully sustainable, carbon-neutral, Last Mile delivery system that is cost-effective and expedient enough to meet the same-day delivery expectations of expedited shipping methods to Campus and Health Systems locations. Learn more about L2.0.

PPE Store Program

In partnership with Research Affairs and the Emergency Operations Center, IPPS Logistics and Procurement teams have been able to maintain an inventory of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that is available for purchase via Oracle Procurement. Campus clients can learn how to order COVID PPE from Oracle Procurement on Blink.

Payment Strategy

UC San Diego's Payment Strategy is part of a larger, UC-wide initiative to protect our institutions from complex fraud schemes. Beyond mitigating risk, the IPPS Payment Strategy team continually assesses all aspects of the payment process and improves upon them to enhance the overall payee experience for campus and suppliers.
