Preferred suppliers are vetted and appointed through a formal and compliant tendering process undertaken by St George’s, University of London or by other organisations to which the university has an affiliation (for example, purchasing consortia). Appointed suppliers are required to be financially sound and have the required expertise, experience and capacity to provide the goods and/or services required by the university. St George’s does not appoint preferred suppliers in response to direct approaches or supplier marketing activity.
Purchasing activity is devolved at St George’s. Therefore, for low value purchases up to certain thresholds, secondary suppliers can be selected through a quotation process. Existing secondary suppliers can be used for future quotations.

The university has a ‘no PO, no pay’ policy. Please ensure you obtain a purchase order from your contact before you provide goods or services to the university. Invoices must quote a valid purchase order number to avoid return.
