Procurement Contact Details

EA Procurement Ordering Advice Helpline Tel. 028 9056 6499

  • Please initially search the MAIN STORE on iProcurement when raising a requisition.  This will quicken the process and ensure you are ordering from EA contracts. 
  • Non-contract purchases that are under £5,000 will still be classified as procurement expenditure but they are not subject to the full range of procurement rules. However please carefully check that the supplies/services required are not available from an existing EA contract before placing the order; that the purchase is a one-off requirement with a total spend <£5,000; and the requirement is clearly specified to at least 2 potential suppliers.
  • Non Catalogue requisitions will be checked by EA procurement staff but it is your responsibility to ensure value for money.
  • Also use this number if you need help using this Extranet

EA Oracle System Queries Tel. 028 9056 6853

  • Please contact iFs Team if you have any system queries related to using the system, system setup or to request further training.
