About RPMI’s Procurement

As RPMI embraces new challenges, the importance of our purchasing decisions grows. Our Procurement policy sets out the principles and standards we expect from our suppliers, including the way they treat their employees, their business ethics and environmental management. In turn, we commit to being open and fair with our suppliers.

  • We spend around £20-25 million every year on indirect spend, purchasing from over 250 suppliers.
  • We take a risk-based approach to managing our supply chain – focusing on the areas that pose the greatest risk/opportunity to RPMI and our scheme members.
  • By working closely with our suppliers, we can identify efficiencies, reducing costs for us and ultimately RPMI’s scheme members.
  • Our procurement policy and supporting policies help us manage risk in our supply chain, ensuring we comply with legislation and maintain our reputation.
  • We aim for a diverse supplier base to ensure continuity of supply of key products and service.
  • We strive to give smaller suppliers access to our purchasing business, helping them build their capability to grow and become more sustainable.
