The procurement department is located at Service headquarters and incorporates the procurement team and the purchasing and supply function that is based at our Earlswood centre.
We deal with initial acquisition and supply through to disposal, incorporating sustainable considerations such as economic, ethical, moral and environmental factors.

Within the central team, corporate procurement is covered in terms of strategy, policy, tendering, contracts, training, national issues and support to budget holders. We aspire to influence national and sector-specific procurement and foster collaboration.

The purchasing and supplies function is responsible for managing the purchasing, storage and distribution of mainly frontline requirements, and some additional service essentials. We operate mainly on a “just in time basis”, where practical, through a small central stores.​

The Head of Procurement is Lyn Jones.
