The Robens customer portfolio is largely Higher Education Institutions with local authority, public sector and healthcare also represented. The Robens also runs a very successful travel health clinic at its Guildford site for business and leisure travellers.
As an Enterprise Unit, Robens is actively seeking opportunities to expand its portfolio of clients both in terms of geographical location and services required, and therefore the purpose of this Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is to;
