The University of Dundee strongly believes in conducting its procurements in an open and inclusive manner with procurement objectives aligned to the University's Strategic Plan. Procurement supports all Schools and Directorates to purchase goods, works and services, working with our stakeholders to achieve best Value for Money. 

Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI)

UoD's EORI Number is 270 9397 31 000   Schools or Departments may be asked by suppliers or by their freight agents etc. for this number in order to help them to clear the importation of goods or equipment when importing from overseas. In the UK, an EORI number is assigned to importers and exporters by HMRC, and is used in the process of customs entry declarations and customs clearance for both import and export shipments travelling to or from the EU and countries outside the EU.

Amend an existing supplier (supplier maintenance)

Suppliers are responsible for ensuring their Account details are kept up to date in OneUniversity. Failure to notify changes can result in missed Purchase Orders and late payments.

To amend details for an existing supplier please email with the following information:

  • Supplier Name and Vendor Number – as shown on a recent Purchase Order or OneUniversity
  • Details of changes required – new company name, address, email, contact information, bank details, new ownership etc.

The information should be sent signed in headed paper.

Procurement will liaise directly with the Supplier to update their details and they may be asked to return an updated Data Capture Form. Procurement will inform Accounts Payable as required.

FAO suppliers and potential suppliers to the University of Dundee

We have been made aware of a PO scam that has been perpetrated in several Universities across the UK and wish to bring this to the attention of existing and potential suppliers to the University of Dundee.

The scam involves Purchase Orders purporting to be from the University being sent to suppliers requesting that goods be delivered to a non-University of Dundee address. The supplier fulfils the order in good faith only to then discover when submitting the invoice that the PO was raised fraudulently by a third party with no links to the University.

If you are a supplier or a potential supplier, and receive a Purchase Order purporting be from the University of Dundee requesting that the goods be delivered to a non-University of Dundee address or if the PO seems suspicious in any way, please contact the University’s Procurement Team ( to verify the PO before accepting it.
