This is the sole responsibility of a manager
No other staff member should be ordering except when there is explicit permission from a manager
The following limits are in place:
– £150 for deputy managers single items, and £300 for total orders (then escalation to a registered manager)
– £300 for manager and group managers single items, and £500 for total orders (then escalation to a director)
These steps should not be skipped – so if a deputy wants to purchase an larger item it needs to go to the registered manager first.
Exceptions are food supplies for the kitchen.
Please refer to the purchasing policy 30.1
