Selling to the University

Robert Gordon University operates using a devolved structure. As such, Departments have responsibility for their own budgets and a fair degree of autonomy in spending that money. However, they are obliged to spend that money with 'contracted' suppliers wherever possible.

A contracted supplier is defined as 'a supplier which has been successful in a University or consortium tender exercise, or for some other substantial reason they have earned the right to the title of 'contracted', and to whom all ongoing University business for contracted items and services should be directed'.

Your aim, if you want to be a contracted, long-term supplier to the University, is to participate through the relevant Invitation to Tender route. At an institutional level, you can browse our current tender opportunities below. Increasingly however, there is a trend towards national and regional agreements, which the University can subscribe to, and these will be advertised by consortia through appropriate routes. One such is the Public Contracts Scotland portal, and we have provided a link to this below.

The University is always interested in innovations and new suppliers, but we strongly encourage use of current contracted suppliers. Our time to investigate new suppliers and innovations is when contracts come up for renewal - at that stage, we will investigate the market, develop a specification and seek out bids via the routes described above.
