The EPS commenced sourcing operations under the centralised procurement model in 2015 and has responsibility for the sourcing of goods and services in its sector-led categories namely Laboratory/Research, Agriculture and Veterinary and Library Goods & Services.

The OGP, EPS and its sector partners are putting in place framework agreements and contracts through which all public sector bodies can buy goods and services. As the State buys a wide range of common goods and services, the sourcing model is broken down into 16 categories of expenditure.

The EPS has established a dedicated customer service-led approach to provide a high-quality professional service to both our clients and suppliers. The EPS Sourcing team includes highly experienced Category Managers, Senior Category Specialists, Buyers and Procurement Administration, which provides proactive and reactive information, assistance and support to all stakeholders.
