Responsible Procurement Glossary


A UKUPC Responsible Procurement Network has been set up with the aim of achieving a consistent approach across the consortia to responsible procurement throughout our activities. UKUPC are committed to embedding responsible procurement in everything we do. We want to look after our communities, our fellow global citizens and our environment, and by working with us, members can access agreements tendered with responsible procurement in mind.

As responsible procurement is considered throughout all of UKUPC’s activities, the UKUPC Responsible Procurement Network has created a Responsible Procurement Glossary to help bring clarity to some of the terms we use. This is a living document and will be amended with new terminology as required. If you are aware of any other relevant terms we should include, please contact marketing.
