Procurement

The University spends approximately £120m on goods, works and services each year. These range from IT hardware and software to laboratory supplies, from cleaning supplies and equipment to space research equipment, from consultancy services to large scale construction contracts. It is committed to ensuring that it gains value for money through its procurement activity and subsequent contract management. Furthermore, it believes that procurement must play a major role if it is to realise its strategic objectives and vision. The University must comply with European and national public procurement legislation.

 Procurement Unit & Category Management

The central Procurement Unit is responsible for setting out the University’s procurement strategy and rules, and leading high value/risk (£50k+) procurement exercises. The Procurement Unit employs a category management approach whereby its procurement professionals specialise in the markets relevant to the University’s operations, for example, IT & Telecoms, Estates and Laboratory & Medical; co-ordinating the University’s requirements from across its colleges and departments.

Individual procurers within departments undertake low value procurements (below £50k), supported by the appropriate Category Manager where necessary, and based on templates and training produced and delivered by the Procurement Unit .
