What our team does

SRUC’s Procurement Team supports the purchase of the goods, services and works required to support our business activities. Procurement is part of the Finance Department and our team members are based at our Edinburgh, and Cupar campuses.

In line with the requirements of the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 and Scottish Government recommended best practice, SRUC advertises contracts for the provision of goods, services and works through Public Contracts Scotland (PCS). SRUC’s use of PCS provides businesses of all sizes including micro, small and medium sized, the opportunity to compete for our business within an open, fair, sustainable and ethical environment.

Procurement model

In order to get up to date information on work being tendered by SRUC and the wider Scottish Public Sector, SRUC encourages all current and potential suppliers to register as a supplier on PCS. In addition, the Scottish Government has developed a Supplier Journey which provides guidance on how to bid for public sector goods, services and health and social care contracts. To find further details visit the Scottish Government Supplier Journey website

The Scottish Model of Procurement lies at the heart of SRUC's procurement policies and procedures. To secure best value, the Procurement Team lets bespoke contracts and also makes use of framework agreements which have been tendered nationwide. We embrace opportunities to collaborate within the Scottish Higher and Further Education Sectors and actively support the activities of the Sectors' centre of procurement excellence, APUC Ltd.
