What goods and services does Pearson buy?
Pearson buys goods and services in nine key categories:
Our Global Procurement function sets the supplier strategy across each of these categories, selecting and vetting suppliers, putting in place agreements and managing relationships so the business can draw on these suppliers’ products and services to do their jobs.
Once a supplier is approved the business is free to transact with a supplier as and when needed. Approved suppliers may be contacted by various parts of the business requesting goods or services.
When agreements are due for renewal or a new need is identified the strategic function will lead this process inviting incumbent suppliers and any relevant new suppliers to take part.
