We have a centralised purchasing department that provides purchasing, stores and vehicle fleet management services to the other departments within our organisation.

The centralised purchasing section enables us to obtain the best possible value for money when purchasing goods and services and ensures compliance with the Financial Regulations.

Our suppliers are important to us and we endeavour to pay our suppliers within 30 days of submission of a valid invoice quoting a relevant purchase order number.

All purchase orders shall be placed in advance and are subject to our standard terms of business unless otherwise agreed. Please visit the various menus within this Procurement page for a link to  standard terms and conditions, tendering opportunities and to learn about our vendor qualification process.

Terms and conditions

We use various standards of terms and conditions of contract depending on the products, goods or services that are being purchased.

Please follow the links for our standard general conditions relating to purchase orders:

General Conditions of Order – Goods 

General Conditions of Order – Services 



We recognise the importance of good levels of quality, environmental control and health and safety which help us provide an effective and efficient service to our customers.

Our policies and procedures reflect  these. The ability of our vendors and contractors to achieve similar levels of control has a direct bearing upon the effectiveness of our business.

The Purchasing and Stores Department has a vendor qualification process in place for all contractors and some of our strategic suppliers.

Vendor Assessment Questionnaire is issued to all new contractors. This paperwork needs to be successfully completed prior to the placement of any purchase orders. Once the contractor has successfully applied they will be required to submit a copy of their latest financial accounts, up to date insurance certificates and an update of any changes since their earlier application.

Copy accounts, insurance certificates or changes can be submitted to us at

All construction contractors need to be successfully registered by the Employer's Federation as Manx Accredited Construction Contractors, they can be contacted at:


 Please download the Vendor Assessment Questionnaire for contractors.
