Responsible Procurement Group


LUPC and SUPC have set up a joint Responsible Procurement Group (RPG), which will replace the respective regional responsible procurement groups. This will bring greater visibility to projects being undertaken throughout our combined membership by widening participation of the groups and strengthen relationships between members. Our focus will be to share best practice and help those interested by supporting the development of practical advice and guidance on important and relevant subjects. 

For more information about joining the Responsible Procurement Group or attending the next meeting, contact Marisol Bernal.
