Procurement, purchasing and ordering
Do you wish to purchase or order something on behalf of the University? You need to take into account a number of procurement procedures. For example, the University makes use of framework contracts. Do you do need temporary staff? You can read all about it on the page of HR.
Does your purchase not fall under a framework contract and does it exceed a certain amount? Then you are obliged to issue a tender.
A variety of ordering processes are currently in place at the University. This will change with the introduction of the Service Portal. You will then be able to place all your orders in a single system: from furniture to coffee and from chemicals to pens.
If you wish to order something for your work that the University has a fixed supplier for, you are obliged to order the item in question (or have it ordered) from the relevant company. More information about ordering:

Hiring temporary staff
If you need to hire temporary staff, there are various options ranging from temps to independent contractors and from temporary contracts to secondment. Always consult your HR department before hiring staff.
The purchase of research equipment falls under the Procurement Law. Both the legislator and subsidy providers require strict compliance with this law. In addition, you are also required to comply with the University procurement rules.
Leiden University has an extensive real estate portfolio. Our Real Estate Directorate is responsible for realising and maintaining all university buildings. If you wish to make modifications to a building, you have to take into account a number of agreements.
