Mr. Seamus McCarthy:

Not external to the body. However, one would expect that there would be co-ordination within a Department with substantial procurement activity. For instance, the HSE, which is probably untypical because of its scale, would have a national procurement function that should be setting frameworks and guidelines for how procurement is to be done locally to the extent that this is permitted.
