GCU Procurement Journey Route 3

This Route provides guidance for the procurement of goods and services classed as high value/high risk/strategic procurements, and where the estimated value of the goods/services you are buying is more than £164,000 (over its lifetime - four years max).  Procurement processes under this route should only be undertaken under the guidance of trained Procurement Officers.  If your procurement falls within this route please contact Procurement.  This process would normally take between 4-6 months. 

Procurement will facilitate your Route 3 process through:

  • Providing documents compliant with a procurement exercise of high value/high risk/strategic procurements
  • Assisting you with the regulatory requirements of a procurement under the EU Directives
  • Guiding you through the evaluation, award and standstill requirements of EU regulated procurements
  • Highlighting the minimum legal and policy obligations involved at each stage of the process
