Responsible Procurement Advisory Group


The Responsible Procurement Advisory Group (RPAG) steers LUPC’s responsible procurement work, by having strategic decision making power over its Responsible Procurement Policy and Strategy. The Group also provide advice to LUPC Members in relation to Responsible Procurement issues. 

The purpose of our group, which brings together procurement professionals with sustainability managers and students drawn from the membership, is to:

a.  Formulate and recommend the Responsible Procurement Policy and Strategy for endorsement by LUPC’s Executive Committee and onward for approval by the LUPC Board;

b.  Recommend projects and actions by LUPC to deliver the strategy in support of the policy;

c.  Oversee LUPC’s progress with its Responsible Procurement programme, ensuring that it has vigour and broadly reflects the values of LUPC’s membership; 

d.  Provide advice to LUPC members on Responsible Procurement issues when appropriate; and

e.  Provide a network for members to learn and share knowledge and advice with the goal of spreading shared and understanding of responsible procurement. 

For more information about joining the RPAG or attending the next meeting, contact Marisol Bernal. 

The next RPAG meeting will be on Thursday 17 September at 14.00 via Microsoft Teams
