How we buy

Our Procurement policies and procedures are applied in practice, through comprehensive Procurement Processes. These processes provide clear guidelines to our employees on the roles and accountabilities of each of the parties involved in every aspect of the competitive tender process. The processes also apply to our subsequent Purchase Order through to Payment procedures.
