The Procurement Shared Service (PSS) provides specialist support to the higher education sector.  We ensure clients secure the best value from their procurement activities.

We specialise in developing procurement capability and capacity.  We have two stand-alone assessments and offer consultancy support across all areas of procurement development.  We help you deliver improved procurement efficiency and effectiveness to your institution and students.

Value for Money Procurement Assessments

The VfM Procurement Assessment delivers value through insight.  The tool provides a sector-specific, holistic assessment of 3rd party spend across your institution.  It will help you identify and prioritise opportunities to deliver greater value for money from your procurement activities.
