Procurement is a central function at Gatwick that supports the operation with effective and efficient purchasing of third-party products and services, alongside the management of its supply pipeline.
Our overall mission is to reduce cost, complying with UK and EU legislation. To achieve this we are committed to:
- drive year-on-year price and spend reductions
- ensure that our processes and systems are used consistently and effectively across the business to enable this cost reduction.
To support this we have:
- a procurement policy
- a purchase to pay (P2P) process
- standard terms and conditions on which to do business.
Engaging with procurement
Our procurement team regularly attends Meet the Buyer events and other local events to meet potential suppliers and share how we do business as a company. Come along and meet us at these events to find out what opportunities there may be with Gatwick.
If you specialise in IT, then we are happy to hear from you about the services you offer. Please email us at ITsupplierforum@gatwickairport.com with a concise one page summary of your proposed services. We will keep your details on an IT supplier database and will follow up with you if there is an opportunity against our future requirements.
From time to time, we hold IT supplier day events where we invite existing and potential suppliers to meet our IT leadership team and procurement so that you can find out more about our currently priorities.
