IT Purchasing Group

The IT Purchasing Group was established in 2003 by the IT Syndicate, supported by Procurement Services and the Computing Service. This group has been set up to act as a forum where topics relating to the purchase of IT Hardware, Software and Services within the University can be considered, including monitoring existing regional and national contracts, investigating the potential for aggregating purchases, and reviewing supplier performance. The group is also intended to be a central focus for coordinating information regarding the purchase of IT within the University and its dissemination to the wider community where appropriate.

Through the work of the Group, it is hoped that recommendations for best practice in IT purchasing can be encouraged throughout the University, leading to best value-for-money all round.
