Purchasing Section

About Us

The Purchasing Section was established to help Colleges/Departments procure their goods/services. Good procurement provides the right outcome, best whole-life cost, legal compliance and reduces risk. 

We provide assistance with all purchasing matters, including procurement legislation in the UK and EU, aswell as the Universities own Financial Policies and Procedures. Our support ranges from advice and guidance to direct assistance. 

In addition, we are also responsible for:

  • Procurement strategy
  • Policy
  • Training and practice
  • Purchasing cards. 


The Purchasing Section is part of the Finance Department and is located  on the first floor of the Finance Building.
