Service Level Agreement

The Satellite Purchasing Office is committed to providing a quality service to our colleagues, expediting the purchasing process within the University's financial regulations. To this end we make best endeavours to;

  • Create and distribute Purchase Orders within 2 working days upon receipt of complete, accurate and fully authorised (by both budget-holder and finance) requisitions by the Purchasing Office. All requisitions must be fully supported by pre-authorisation forms where required.
  • Process travel and 'emergency' requisitions within the same day, within normal office hours.

NB: These deadlines are targets and may be affected by peak times and staff availability and individual requisition requirements
