Universities are now operating in a competitive, global marketplace. At the same time, student expectations have risen rapidly and continue to rise, driving an increasing need for improved facilities, new technology and all with a fundamental requirement for the highest ethical and sustainability standards.

Higher Education procurement functions must support these changes by;

• Addressing rising costs through cost reduction initiatives
• Sourcing best value-for-money goods and services to deliver a high-class student and talent experience
• Supporting new technology introduction through facilitating University-Supplier interactions
• Delivering a sustainable university through appropriate procurement policy
• After staff costs (both academic and support), operating expenses account for the next biggest spend area for a University – up to 40% of total costs. So, how bought-in goods and services are managed is fundamental. In Higher Education, procurement really matters
