Procurement and Insurance

University Procurement aim to provide a cost effective and efficient facility for the procurement and provision of a wide range of goods and services within specified limits of quality and cost.

Procurement organise the suppliers, tenders and framework agreements for the university and, the Category Managers work alongside the Buying Team to ensure that we maintain competitive suppliers and process requisitions as efficiently as possible. 

We offer welcome your queries and all requisition queries under £500 or queries relating to orders by Purchasing Card, will be actioned by the Buying Team.   

Queries regarding suppliers, or larger requisitions will be dealt with by the Procurement team.  

We try to help to make core systems as user friendly as possible and run regular training sessions and workshops on zoom to help with inductions for new staff using core, and refreshers which we recommend all end users attend annually.  

Our YouTube videos offer bite-sized training solutions and we are happy to create new videos and create dedicated training sessions in response to your needs, though we recommend you bookmark our training page, as we are always adding content.
