USE OF STANDARD COLORS
The university’s standard color schemes are listed on the Division of Finance and Support Services’ Standard University Colors website.
The associate vice president for Facilities will notify the director of Procurement and Strategic Sourcing if a standard color is no longer available and recommend alternate colors for substitution
Standard university colors are to be included in the specifications when soliciting for bids, offers, or proposals to purchase affected items. Standard colors are to be included in the item descriptions on the purchase order for affected items.
If there is a question as to whether a color for signs and other materials matches a standard color, the director of Procurement and Strategic Sourcing will make the final determination.
Except as noted in Section 02.04, approval to deviate from the standard colors requirement must be obtained by the account manager from the vice president for Finance and Support Services (VPFSS) prior to the purchase being made.
All university fleet vehicles will be ordered in white. Exempted from the standard vehicle color requirements are the Athletics and University Police Department vehicles.
Vehicle decals or wraps may be added to vehicles and off-highway vehicles with the concurrence of the director of Facilities Management (Fleet Manager) and approval from the VPFSS prior to application.
Approval is contingent upon the decal or wrap application meeting State of Texas code for marking exempted vehicles, as well as its consistency with the university’s brand guidelines.
The associate vice president for Facilities is to furnish the director of Procurement and Strategic Sourcing with an updated list identifying other materials requiring matching to the university’s standard color schemes. The director of Procurement and Strategic Sourcing shall distribute this information to account managers on an “as needed” basis.
