By working closely with Trust staff, the Operational Buying Team processes requisitions and raises supplier purchase orders to attain best value in line with internal procedures to ensure compliance with each Trust's Standing Financial Instructions (SFI's) and Quality Controls, as well as EU and UK Government Public Procurement Legislation.


Buyers process requisitions for our Trusts through a variety of eProcurement systems including Integra eSeries, Oracle iProcurement, Agresso, and NHS Supply Chain.


Buying Systems Coordinators manage Stock and Non-Stock eProcurement systems and processes according to internally verified procedures to ensure compliance.


Buying System Trainers are responsible for the roll out and staff training of Stock and Non-Stock eProcurement systems throughout both Acute Trusts.
