Information for Suppliers

The Procurement department welcomes all suppliers!

Procurement - Our Vision

Procurement is at the heart of providing value for money to our Higher Educations partners through the effective management and control of third-party suppliers.  Our procurement is committed to the promotion of the highest standards of professional procurement and to the development of high-quality management information to evidence compliance to UK and EC procurement legislation.

 Best value procurement will:

  • Be transparent;
  • Be driven by desired results;
  • Create the most economically advantageous balance of quality and cost;
  • Reduce the burden on administrative and monitoring resources;
  • Lead to simplified or routine transactions;
  • Encourage open and fair competition;
  • Follow all appropriate regulations and legislation
