The Procurement section is a division of the College's Finance Department and serves the procurement needs of all Derby College's academic and support services.

Derby College is committed to ensure all procurement of goods and services comply with the College's financial regulations and tendering procedures, value for money and cost savings are achieved.

Our mission is to provide a professional and comprehensive service to all customers within the College, using best procurement practices for the purchase of goods and services, establishing and renewing contracts on the Colleges' behalf.

This is achieved by providing the College with help, advice and guidance from the Association of Colleges, Crescent Purchasing Consortium, and FELP, as well as sharing information with other FE Colleges.
