There are a several category groups across the UK Universities Purchasing Consortia (UKUPC) which LUPC staff are involved in. Many of them include participation by LUPC members, with some being national groups and others specific to LUPC.
They cover the following categories:
- Professional Services
- STEMed and Laboratory
- Office Supplies
The groups engage in category discussions around the supplier market, best practice procurement, contract/framework performance, management of framework suppliers and responsible procurement.
Members can review the List of Category Groups and are very welcome to get involved in any that are of of interest. Please contact the group lead for more information.
