University of Plymouth SB

The University of Plymouth has a truly diverse range of activity spanning across both teaching and research disciplines and this is reflected in what we buy.

We are civically engaged, which means ‘what’, ‘how’ and ‘where’ we source Goods, Services and Works from is important to us. This applies across the board, from our daily consumables (stationary, cleaning products and catering supplies) to specialised research equipment and the maintenance of our estate.

The Procurement Team support all areas of the University and we recognise that the University is a driver for economic innovation and advancement, a catalyst for social change and a champion of cultural development and sustainability.

Check out our website for a wealth of information designed to help suppliers who want to support our mission, ‘Advancing knowledge, transforming lives’.
