Procurement involves the process of selecting vendors, establishing payment terms, strategic vetting, selection, the negotiation of contracts and actual purchasing of goods.
The University has appointed a number of preferred suppliers for a range of goods and services. The purpose of these arrangements is to ensure as far as possible the best total cost impact at departmental level. The total cost impact includes: price, transaction cost and risk. Where there is a preferred supplier for a class of goods and services, the University expects them to be used.
Purchasing is a decentralised function at Flinders University and accordingly a wide range of personnel may find themselves involved in the purchasing process.
