The Strategic Procurement Unit (SPU) operates independently from any administrative spend department and reports directly to the director of finance.
The SPU has responsibility for:
- setting, monitoring and maintaining minimum standards for the conduct of purchasing/procurement activities across the University and its subsidiaries regardless of the source of funding (as directed by internal auditors and Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE))
- defining, promulgating and promoting best procurement practice
- monitoring the University's purchasing performance and leading initiatives designed to ensure the University obtains best value for money in all its purchasing activities
- providing a focus and facilitation for the assessment and delivery of purchasing training needs throughout the University
