Jisc Procureweb's vision is to become a single point of contact
for Procurement Information within post 16 education.
The key elements of the vision are:
- To become a sustainable service which is economic
and cost effective
- To eliminate duplication across the customer
- To improve collaboration and systems integration
across the customer base
- To be the primary source for procurement
- To be a central reference point for help and
assistance with procurement solutions
- To implement and maintain an easy, but secure
access, for users to all systems and products
Jisc Procureweb's focus is to provide consortia and
institutions with procurement related information, as and when
required. For example, contract information via the Generic eMarketplace
(GeM) or procurement advice via the Higher
Education Library - Procurement (HELP) and Further
Education Library - Procurement (FELP).
Why is this important?
Universities and Colleges need to procure ICT systems to run
every aspect of their business. Rapidly changing demands
require systems to be flexible and adaptable; today's severe budget
constraints demand they are the very best value for money.
What we provide
Jisc Procureweb are supporting institutions to meet this
challenge by developing best practice for ICT systems procurement,
and promoting the development and use of open standards to enable
different systems to work together.
We are helping to disseminate best practice throughout the
sector. Jisc Procureweb, a Jisc Advance service, will guide you
through the evolving legal, financial, cultural and technical
issues involved in the procurement process. The Higher
Education Library - Procurement (HELP) provides information on
procurement strategy, policy, procedures and guidance.
