We have a specialist Commercial Team based at our Bristol headquarters responsible for procuring a wide range of commodities and services.

The unit seeks to get best value for money. This means we buy the items that best match our needs, taking into account:

  • quality
  • service
  • delivery against price
  • maintenance, running and disposal costs

The team is committed to making it as easy as possible for existing and potential suppliers to trade with the Inspectorate.
