My role covers a range of responsibilities in purchasing. I ensure all purchasing transactions across the department are carried out in best practice and in accordance with the University and external financial regulations. I am the department’s first contact for gaining Oracle access and can provide assistance in using the database. I also look after our purchasing assistants and will at times advise them on approving purchase orders in Oracle.
I have been with NDORMS since Nov. 2008, and have enjoyed many opportunities to liaise with our administrative teams and researchers and acquired a better understanding of how our department functions. Working together with the Finance team and Botnar Administrator I also contribute towards the development and implementation of departmental financial procedures.
Whether internal (relating to goods received), or external (liaising with suppliers) I can deal with any purchasing issues that arise, and help to find a working solution.
