The University has a non-pay expenditure of circa £80 million per annum which is across a wide range of works, goods and services.
As a publicly funded body we are subject to the Public Procurement Regulations 2006 as amended (affectionately known as the EU Directives) and are required by law to advertise our requirements over the given thresholds through the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).
We are also members of the Southern Universities Purchasing Consortia (SUPC) for many commodity contracts.
As a university we are passionate about embedding sustainable procurement.
All our requirements, regardless of value, are well publicised locally through Sell2Plymouth.
