The University operates a Category Management approach to Procurement. The Category Team is divided by area of major expenditure: IT & Labs, Facilities, Professional Services (e.g. Consultancy, external Marketing, external Training) and Travel & Insurance. This team is responsible for managing contracted suppliers in their areas of expenditure and for tendering any new contracts. If you have a requirement which exceeds £50,000, under the University’s Financial Regulations, the Category Team must carry out this procurement exercise.
