We endeavour to ensure that customers always have access to qualified and experienced purchasing professionals who offer a comprehensive service. Project allocations are flexible to match available resources. Therefore, the following areas of expertise are intended only as a guide where an officer has particular knowledge to assist a solution. Overlaps in expertise are indicated deliberately. The list is not comprehensive, but shows major purchasing areas. Any member of the purchasing staff is able to contribute to 'special projects' subject to an appropriate technical brief.
