University standard terms and conditions

The University’s Financial Regulations require a department to run a tendering process for the purchase of goods and services worth between £25,000 and £100,000 (excl. VAT). The Tender Documents Guide   provides templates to assist departments with managing this process.

The University’s Financial Regulations (Purchases section 3.1(4)) also require all contracts for the purchase of goods to incorporate the University’s Standard Terms and Conditions of Purchase and contracts for services to use one of the standard sets of terms, unless (in either case) other forms are negotiated through the University Purchasing Department.  Please refer to the templates below.
