About Procurement Services

Procurement Services is part of the Finance Division and our role is to help departments maximise value for money at a time when budgets and resources are becoming increasingly stretched and to support the University's need to demonstrate to interested external bodies such as the Research Councils' and HEFCE that the necessary controls and procedures are in place to ensure that public funds are spent wisely.

The Head of Procurement co-ordinates the formulation and dissemination of the Procurement strategy for the University over the whole range of non-pay spend. They are also reponsible for the Procurement Procedures which provides the framework of best practice for use by departments and Institutions of the University and forms part of the University's Financial Regulations and is chapter 4 of the Financial Procedures Manual. 

The Procurement Services team provides the infrastucture to raise the profile of procurement best practice.
