We are receiving regular updates from CPC PPE agreement suppliers. Click here for current stock availability and lead times. Full information on the agreement is on the HE Contracts website.
CPC have also been discussing price fluctuations for PPE in an ever changing market environment. The suppliers report that in the short term pricing would continue to fluctuate as supply is still lagging behind demand. The three-month projection however is looking more positive as supply catches up with demand and more stock will be readily available at reduced costs for the suppliers on the framework to procure.
Also so you are aware the VAT exemption for high demand PPE items was due to expire on the 31st of July, however this has now been extended to the 31st of October.
