Procurement is also responsible for the University’s Procurement Policy and Procedures which ensure the University is fair, open, transparent and prevents discriminatory treatment towards all suppliers, no matter whether local or global, SME or multi-national.
The team is an active member of the Southern Universities Procurement Consortium. Where appropriate, the University will make use of frameworks from the SUPC and other purchasing consortia, as well as issuing tenders directly to fulfil the needs of our internal customers.
