There is a cashback incentive for members to check their spend figures quarterly. Complete the member spend report and if a supplier doesn’t report spend and you report the missing spend for a framework to CPC, you will receive 25% (excluding VAT) of the income that is due to CPC from the supplier. This initiative was introduced in 2016/2017 for all members and rolled back to also include 2015/2016. It is well worth checking your spend each quarter as the biggest cashback to date is £3123.98.
Should you find any discrepancies between your spend and what has been reported kindly contact Liz Owen via firstname.lastname@example.org or call Liz on 0161 974 0948 with the following information to hand:

Why should you check your spend reports?
Member spend report quarterly periods
The CPC financial year runs from 1st August to 31st July and member spend reports are produced quarterly. Once each quarter ends members are emailed at the end of the following month once all the spend figures have been collected.1st August to 31st October
Should you require your report in a half yearly or yearly format contact Liz Owen via email@example.com or call Liz on 0161 974 0948 and Liz will provide this for you.
Additional notes on spend reports
Should your institution have tendered or negotiated a contract separately or via another consortium agreement and not through the CPC, spend information will not show against that supplier even if the supplier is available via the CPC. Some suppliers will move institutions over to the CPC contract mid-term, others will not. Members should check their situation with each relevant supplier.
No spend will be reported to the CPC by suppliers on any TUCO contracts.
Outsourced Catering spend is only reported yearly and is included in May to July’s figures each year.
