The College takes note and where applicable, follows the University Purchasing Procedures.
In respect of major expenditure (both capital and revenue) the appropriate professional advice is taken. This can be either from the University’s purchasing team, or from other professional advisors. Responsibility for purchasing rests with the College Bursars, who are required to seek the approval of Finance Committee and/or Governing Body before such expenditure can be incurred.
The College looks for value for money in all purchases and procurement for goods and services. Where necessary, tenders and quotations are sought from all suppliers. The College participates in the collegiate purchasing consortium in order to ensure best value for money.
In order to ensure impartiality in purchasing decisions, a Conflict of Interest Policy is in operation.
