Guidance, help and advice on the procurement of goods and services at the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

The College will procure goods and services that are value for money, but also considers the reputation, experience, and financial integrity of prospective suppliers.

The Royal College of Anaesthetists is not a contracting authority for the purposes of EU public procurement regime as implemented by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (as amended).

We are a member of the London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC) which is a not-for-profit professional buying organisation, owned by its members, for its members. LUPC exists to generate savings and better value through the collaborative procurement of goods and services.

Early engagement

This means that a procurement idea is currently active, it is in the early stage of development and judging interest from potential suppliers.

The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) will be seeking proposals in April 2017 for the replacement of the current fixed line telephone handsets and the implementation of a unified communications (UC) system from its London office to provide:

  • Telephony services
  • Audio Conferencing
  • Video Conferencing
  • Online screen sharing and collaboration

The key benefits are to provide more flexible working options and improved remote collaboration between staff and members of the RCoA as well as to realise efficiency savings on time and travel costs.
