Market Insight Document

UKUPC’s quarterly Market Insight Document, launched in September 2021, outlines issues impacting international and national supply chains. Written by consortia category managers, it covers considerations related to labour, logistics, regulations and commerciality at category level and provides:

  • A high-level guide to market activity, risks and opportunities in the wake of significant disruption following Brexit, Covid, the war in Ukraine and a variety of other international natural, political, economic and social events.
  • Information gleaned from a number of sources including directly from suppliers and appropriate news sources.

Contract Database for Members Use

LUPC has created a Contracts Database for use by members’ procurement teams to facilitate the effective management of contracts. It is particularly useful for those with a devolved procurement structure. The database will support members’ strategic drivers and allow them to manage and prioritise their contracts, with the reporting tool summarising the number of contracts and their status.

Members can download a blank copy of this excel contract database and a guidance document which should be used in conjunction with it. The guide explains how to maximise the potential of the Contracts Database.

For any queries, please contact Bindi Sandhu.
