Procurement is the process of the acquisition of goods, services, works and other supplies by the public sector, usually by means of a contractual agreement after public competition.
The procurement of goods and services for the Northern Trust is managed and delivered by the Procurement and Logistics Service (PaLS), which is accredited as a Centre of Procurement Expertise (COPE). PaLS in Antrim co-ordinates contracts for goods and services on behalf of the Northern Trust.
PaLS is part of the Business Services Organisation (BSO) which provides a broad range of regional business support functions and specialist professional services to the whole of the health & social care sector in Northern Ireland. The BSO website can be accessed at http://www.hscbusiness.hscni.net/.
