Mandatory Contracts

These pages detail Mandatory Contracts that staff (including academics) must use where the goods or services that they require fall within scope. The appropriate Category Manager determines the Mandatory Contracts within the categories for which they are responsible. Where it is felt that better value for money can be gained outside of a Mandatory Contract, approval must first be gained from the appropriate Category Manager  before following the alternative procurement route.

Generally, the benefits of Mandatory Contracts include favourable prices as a result of economies of scale, pre-agreed contract terms and conditions that reflect the University’s objectives and risk areas, and a compliant and relatively quick procurement route.
