OrderPoint is an electronic procurement system used by us and schools to request goods and services effectively and efficiently.
Its functionality allows shoppers to select products from either an internal catalogue, free text items or a punchout catalogue (current vendors YPO, Lyreco and Arco).
The ordering process makes shopping quicker and easier and using the punchouts, shoppers can avoid ordering out of stock goods and purchase at the prices quoted.
All schools shoppers should be aware of the following disclaimer when ordering:
Derbyshire County Council has enabled technology in OrderPoint to allow schools to purchase goods and/or services from the external product catalogues of selected suppliers (the 'services').
Derbyshire County Council cannot recommend the use of any particular supplier that can be accessed via this technology, and any school using the services shall be solely responsible for selecting a particular supplier of the services. The school will also need to demonstrate that it has complied with the regulations and procedures (including value for money obligations) as set out in the Derbyshire scheme for financing schools.
Accordingly whilst Derbyshire County Council has taken reasonable care in providing this purchasing facility through OrderPoint, other than where it is negligent, we cannot accept any liability for any damages or losses howsoever incurred by any school where such a school uses the services.
