UKUPC Impact Statement 2019/20


UK Universities Purchasing Consortia Impact Statement:

How Did You Benefit in 2019/20?

NEUPC is pleased to bring you this year’s UKUPC (UK Universities Purchasing Consortium) Impact Statement, highlighting how institutions like yours have benefited through consortia collaboration. 

UKUPC is a partnership between UK purchasing consortia created to support collaborative procurement within Higher Further Education.  We work together to share knowledge and best practice, to help each other and our wider procurement community.  You are receiving this report because NEUPC actively contributes to this partnership and we think it’s important that you know how that is benefitting your institution.

Here are a few highlights, but please do read more within the report:

  • Members spent £1.4BN through consortia frameworks and achieved £74.8M in cashable savings and £118.6M in non-cashable/process savings.
  • Members had access to over 150 agreements covering a wide range of strategic spend areas for your institution.
  • Members accessed risk assessments and best practice guides, along with guidance and support to address significant challenges such as COVID-19, Brexit and the responsible procurement agenda.  

For further information about UKUPC and the work taking place, keep an eye out for the next edition of our newsletter due for publication in April or visit

Thank you and we look forward to supporting you over the year ahead.
