Tender Working Parties

A Tender Working Party (TWP) is the group that shapes and supports the delivery of LUPC framework agreements. The individuals who make up the TWP are usually a mixture of consortia staff, HE procurement professionals and technical or specialist representatives.  All have a key role to play in ensuring the delivery of efficient and effective contracts which meet the needs of our collective membership.

From personal development to advantages for the organisation and suppliers, this document, developed by UK Universities Purchasing Consortia (UKUPC), sets out the benefits to you of participating in TWPs and explains our promise to professionally support and deliver effective working groups. 

Guide to Evaluation

UKUPC has written a Guide to Evaluation for anyone involved in UKUPC tender working parties. It can also be used for guidance in evaluating tenders for regulated procurements of any type of product or service.
