Important information for Suppliers/Potential Suppliers of the University of Birmingham

 

Warning

Please note there are fraudulent organisations seeking by deception to obtain goods from suppliers using false University of Birmingham logo’s and names etc. The only valid email address would be procurement@bham.ac.uk 
Anything that differs from this is most likely deception, you can make enquiries via the above address.

How can I tell if I have received a fraudulent order?

Here are the top points to note:

  1. Email address: make sure the order has a genuine University email address and does not contain hyphens or other associated minor alterations. Addresses such as  purchasing@birham-university.co.uk are bogus. 
  2. Delivery location; the University of Birmingham is located at; Selly Oak, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2TT, therefore, all main deliveries should be for this address. The University does have some delivery addresses in Stratford (the Shakespeare Institute) Coniston, Kings Norton, the Dental School  and Selly Oak Campus, however, you should check if outside the main campus.
  3. No private residences; there should be no requirement to deliver to private residences on behalf of the University (please note some locations identified above)
