Role of the University Procurement team

The University Procurement team advises all the University's Schools and Professional Services as to how to go about purchasing goods and services for their needs at a competitive price and ensure compliance with UK, World Trade Organisation and European Union Procurement Law.

The University Procurement team has adopted the Scottish Government's Procurement Journey methodology which "facilitates best practice and consistency across the public sector".

The University Procurement team advises staff on available contracts and where necessary advises staff on carrying out an Invitation to Quote (ITQ) or Invitation to Tender (ITT) depending on the value and complexity of the requirements.

We are obliged to use the contracts and are open to suggestions for any supply arrangements that should be set up and welcome feedback on existing contracts and suppliers.

Should you require any help or assistance, please contact us by e-mail procurement@hw.ac.uk
