Trevor Adams, UCT's Purchasing Manager, recently presented a paper at the 2008 National University Finance and Procurement Conference in Cairns, Australia, hosted by Higher Education Services.
Titled Collaborative Procurement in Higher Education - A South African Perspective, the paper addressed changing trends in financial management and strategic procurement in higher education.
This year the emphasis was on environmental sustainability in higher education, which refers to increased costs of energy and resources which will impact on the future of research, teaching and university management.
