Procurement and Insurance

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

Procurement organises the suppliers, tenders and framework agreements for the University. Our Category Managers work alongside the Buying team to ensure that we maintain competitive suppliers and process requisitions as efficiently as possible. 

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.

In order to continuously evaluate the delivery of service and to aid in improving our processes, please take a few minutes to complete this customer service survey.
