Charity IT Leaders and LUPC

LUPC long image

We are delighted to work with LUPC to support our members in improving procurement and supply chain management processes and to safeguard against unethical conduct in procurement and supply management, reinforcing the focus on sourcing responsibly. Thanks to Don Bowman of LUPC and Cristian Martin, Director of Procurement at LSE, we are able to provide our members with a guidance document to introduce the core principals of responsible procurement.

LUPC’s normal membership fee is based on the non-pay spend of an organisation and would be between £2,250 and £7,200 per annum. LUPC have agreed a preferential rate for Charity IT Leaders’ members that ensures charities can join for the lowest membership fee of £2,250 irrespective of their size. Contact us to find out more.

LUPC is a not-for-profit organisation whose purpose is to achieve value for money for all their members in their procurement of goods and services, in a way that benefits members, society and the economy, whilst minimising damage to the environment. In collaboration with other higher education purchasing consortia and with responsible procurement at the centre of everything they do, their expert procurement team manages a large portfolio of framework agreements securing best value for each of their members.

Established in 1968, LUPC’s membership is made up of universities and colleges of higher and further education, as well as other not-for-profit organisations in the education, arts, science, charity, and wider public sectors.
