This information is provided to help suppliers understand, and make use of the tools available within the Scottish public sector procurement environment.  The links below will take you to various sources of information which illustrate how Abertay University and other public sector bodies within Scotland procure goods, services and works to comply with European and Scottish regulations and organisational policy.

Abertay University is a member of Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges (APUC) Ltd, which is the Procurement Centre of Expertise for Universities and Colleges in Scotland.  APUC works collaboratively with universities and colleges to set up contracts on behalf of the Higher and Further Education sectors, to purchase supplies, services and works.

The University is working in partnership with this centre of expertise to support the development of advanced procurement across the further and higher education sector in Scotland.

In order to fully comply with Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 and European procurement legislation, the University has dedicated procurement staff employed under a shared service agreement with APUC to provide a full procurement service.

The University may enter into collaborative procurements led by central bodies such as Scottish Procurement, APUC Limited, Crown Commercial Service and Scotland Excel.
