Centrally Procured Items: What is it?
We secure and procure a range of services centrally. In doing so, we secure value for money, economies of scale and are able to manage the operational and quality elements of each contract. The central contract management process ensures monitoring and timely procurements across the Trust supply chain.
Examples of centrally procured items include; insurance, capital works, catering, cleaning, estates contract, uniforms, professional services, audits, systems, utilities and contracted service provisions.
In addition, the Trust online procurement system provides a gateway into the market place, ensuring competitive tendering can be completed in line with OJEU regulations.
