UKUPC newsletter #1  


As you may be aware NEUPC held COUP 2019 in early September, hopefully many of you had the chance to attend as by all accounts it was a great event and an ideal opportunity to connect with fellow HE procurement professionals across the UK.


Many who attended the conference and its sessions will have heard about the various collaborative activities being undertaken across consortia on behalf of members.

You may not be aware of the number of national working groups in operation that regularly work to coordinate activities to deliver greatest value to members. The banner under which the consortia work together nationally, is called UK Universities Purchasing Consortia, or UKUPC. The first edition of the UKUPC newsletter, highlights the collaboration underway across a range of specialist areas through the operation of four focused working groups: the Heads of Consortia Group, Joint Contracting Group, Consortia Information Systems Strategy Group and Communications Group.

Please take a few moments to read the newsletter and gain a better understanding of the remit of these groups and how they work to support better procurement across the UK HE sector.
