Deputy Head of Procurement
University of Manchester
Ian has worked within HE and procurement for over 20 years. Following appointment to his current post in 2008 he led the complex procurement exercise to appoint partnership contractors to deliver the University’s £1Bn campus redevelopment programme. The resulting framework successfully incorporated social and environmental deliverables alongside traditional commercial requirements within the contract. Ian continues to work to include wider corporate and social considerations within the traditional concept of value for money. He has been heavily involved in developing responsible procurement and the use of the Flexible Framework to embed sustainable procurement practices within business as usual.
