Materiel Management coordinates and controls materials for Facilities Management and functions as a liaison between Facilities Management and UCLA Purchasing. Materiel Management has replaced the more traditional procurement emphasis on order processing with a more proactive approach that forecasts and plans for material needs and establishes inventory policies and procedures. The new approach has improved material availability and reduced obsolete and excess material, resulting in fewer shortages and better client response and efficiency.
Materiel Management uses a centralized, automated MRO supplies warehouse and bar code technology to track materials to make maximum use of existing, and reduce overall, departmental inventory. The system provides increased accuracy in billing, inventory costing and quantity-on-hand data to increase our negotiating position while monitoring vendor performance. In addition, we are responsible for tracking the inventorial assets.
