Purchase of PPE

Information on the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

The purchase of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and cleaning products, in response to Covid-19, should be informed by the latest University guidance, including the FAQs, which outlines when such measures are appropriate.

It is also important to follow the usual administrative and approval processes for purchases. This will ensure that the products are fit for purpose and are not purchased from fraudulent organisations. It will also allow the University to secure the best achievable value for money, through as compliant a route as possible, at this time, as well as ensuring that the University benefits from the current temporary zero-rated VAT on such products.

Therefore, such purchases should be made via Creative and Print Services’ Online Store, where products are sourced from approved and pre-qualified suppliers with which the University has secured as competitive prices as possible.
