Statement on supporting the Higher Education procurement community

 
 

The Chair of UK Universities Purchasing Consortium (UKUPC) Board, Richard Murphy, along with the Managing Director of NWUPC Ltd, Julie-Ann Garton, have issued a statement outlining the support the consortia can offer to the HE sector during the COVID-19 pandemic and for the challenges that lie ahead.

The statement highlights the savings and efficiencies that can be achieved by UKUPC members through the use of collaborative framework agreements, and the additional added-value services through learning and development, key research and reports, and personalised procurement services.

UKUPC (UK Universities Purchasing Consortia) is the evolved convergence of eight UK Consortia; APUC, HEPCW, LUPC, NEUPC, NWUPC, SUPC, TEC and TUCO who created a formal partnership to support collaborative procurement within Higher Education. We work together to maximise use of the sector’s combined leverage, share knowledge / best practice and to support our wider procurement community.
