Information for suppliers
The University of Westminster welcomes approaches from companies wishing to be considered for inclusion on its list of approved suppliers and contractors.
On this page you will find guidance on how to become a registered supplier, and information about our purchasing policies and required standards.
All contracts valued in excess of £164,176 (ex-VAT) are advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). This includes term contracts, and one-off purchases such as major items of equipment and high-volume requirements.
The University of Westminster makes use of a number of regionally and nationally-negotiated higher education contracts to buy goods and services, for example office supplies and photocopiers. Companies interested in being considered for these commodity areas should approach the relevant awarding body, consortium or national contracting entity in the first instance. Examples of such organisations are the Office of Government Commerce and the Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium.
We are also a member of the London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC). Visit their website to learn how to become a supplier to the LUPC.
The University of Westminster does sometimes buy outside of these agreements — mainly for more specialised goods and services. We also aim to open our supply chains to smaller local businesses as far as possible.
