Our processes aim to maximise return on donated funds, so the most resources possible can directly benefit survivors.
Our procurement processes and supply chain management aim to maximise return on donated funds, so the most resources possible can directly benefit survivors.
Procurement is an essential function within Refuge.
Our procurement processes aim to deliver the best value and to manage risk within our supply chain. We are committed to maximising our return on donated funds so that the most resources possible can directly benefit our clients, helping them rebuild their lives after abuse.
We understand the need for a procurement process that encourages innovative service provision and delivers efficiency, effectiveness and value for money.
Our key procurement principles are:
- Value for money. A prime aim of the procurement process.
- Ethical approach. We seek partners who ensure fairness and transparency, and adhere to best practices and legislation.
- Risk management. We ensure Refuge is not opened to any unnecessary risk from its supply chain.
While Refuge is not publicly funded and therefore not subject to the Public Procurement Regulations, we do reflect best practice in our approach to sourcing all goods and services.
We aim to use Refuge’s standard contracts where appropriate and most of our spend is covered by our Standard Terms and Conditions.
