UKUPC Market Insight Document

UKUPC and its professional category leads throughout the UK have produced a document providing insight to members on what is happening in national and international supply chains. The report was emailed to heads of procurement on the 1st September 2021 and will be updated and circulated quarterly. We hope this comprehensive support document will be helpful to our Members and their teams when considering their current procurement activity and strategic planning. 


Understanding real time information regarding the markets from which we are purchasing is key to making good, strategic and commercial procurement decisions.  Recognising and acknowledging challenges and opportunities means we are able to appropriately manage our requirements to ensure continuity of supply at appropriate pricing, whilst also managing risks.   

We would welcome your comments on the content, structure and usefulness of the Insight document in order that we can make edition two, which will be published in December (and quarterly thereafter), even more valuable.

Please contact Helen Dodd-Williams, NWUPC's Head of Strategic Procurement for a copy of the document (Members only) or to provide feedback. You can access the UKUPC Website here
