Two universities are extending their e-procurement programmes by implementing an e-marketplace tool for purchasing laboratory supplies.

The University of Nottingham and the University of Edinburgh have signed deals with solutions provider Sciquest to use its web-hosted e-marketplace application.

Peter Simmonds, director of procurement at the University of Nottingham, said the deal follows a year's pilot and other universities are monitoring the project.

The University of Edinburgh, which aims to process 80 per cent of orders electronically by 2005-06, now deals with 43 suppliers online.

The University of Leeds and some London universities are trialling an-e-procurement system from Science Warehouse.
