Erasmus University Rotterdam is a procurement service in the sense referred to in the Aanbestedingswet 2012 (Procurement Act), whereby the estimated value of its design orders exceeds the European threshold value. That makes it obligatory for the EUR to follow a European tendering procedure.

The EUR cooperates with a variety of selected suppliers, according to multiple framework agreements: several design agencies, printers, a translation agency and an online marketing agency. All sections of the EUR – with the exception of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences / Erasmus MC and Erasmus Magazine – must make use of these agencies for ordering Design and DTP work.

Management of the framework agreements is the responsibility of the Department of Marketing and Communications, as the so-called lead buyer.
