Information for staff

 Quick tips for staff

  • Check to see if there are any exisitng suppliers before getting quotes from new suppliers.  MyERP and the How to Buy... guides will help you.
  • Make sure you know when to contact Procurement.  The Finance Regulations, and Procurement Policy, state that for any purchasing activity over £25,000 (aggregated over 4 years) Procurement need to be involved.**
  • Raise a purchase order in advance of agreeing to any work from a supplier.
  • Make sure you include delivery and duty charges in your order. 
    • Incoterms are an international set of rules for shipping.  Ordering goods "DDP" from a supplier will mean you order will be Delivered Duty Paid.  Anything that isn't DDP will mean that you are responsible for any customs and duty / tax charges, potentially leading to shipments getting delayed and additional costs for the University being incurred. 
    • You may also be responsbile for delivery to the University, so damage in transit might not be the supplier's fault.
  • If you have a Corporate Credit Card, make sure you are familiar with the University policy for its use.  
  • Refer to the staff intranet for any further Procurement information, including our How to Buy... guides, policies and Procurement news.
