To support the operations of The University of Alabama by providing a program for University departments to acquire work uniforms or professional wear in an efficient, cost effective and professional manner while providing excellent customer service.
A work uniform program coordinated by Financial Affairs Business Activities, while working with Procurement Services, exists to assist University departments in the selection, fitting, ordering, and distribution processes for employees that require work uniforms. Standardized uniforms identify University employees to students, faculty, and staff and validate their presence in all locations. A professional shirt program is also available for employees that require a more professional appearance.
The on-going efficient and effective operation of the uniform process depends on collaboration between uniform program managers and designated coordinators in participating departments. Uniform program managers work in conjunction with Procurement Services and act as liaisons between university departments and the University’s uniform contract vendor in the planning and execution of all phases of the uniform process, including problem solving. Work uniform selections are standardized as much as possible and to the extent practical across campus to insure continuity, quality and availability. It is understood that some departments may have special requirements. Work uniform and professional wear fittings are held annually during early spring. New employee uniform fittings are scheduled as needed.
