A new Regional Procurement Advisor for East Anglia


By Ashley Cox

CPC is delighted to introduce Roshni Popat as our newest Regional Procurement Advisor (RPA), supporting our East Anglian member institutions with their procurement challenges.

Roshni will be able to provide CPC members around Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire with free information, advice and guidance, including in-person presentations for staff and relevant stakeholders, plus remote assistance.

Last year, almost 500 Crescent Purchasing Consortium members made use of our Regional Procurement Advisor service, engaging with the free RPA support offering to help them navigate their education procurement journeys. 

From providing good practice guidelines to steering staff towards regulatory compliance, our RPAs could serve as a priceless resource in this year of Procurement Act reform. With a goal of empowering members to get more out of their CPC membership, the RPAs can also to assist with signposting towards further professional resources.

CPC now has six RPAs to cover both England and Wales, with Roshni joining the local representatives of the East, South West & Wales, Daniel Kinder, London & the South East, Ola Ojuri, the Midlands, Yorkshire & Humberside, Jack Horton, the North West, Louise Ashcroft and the North East & North Yorkshire, Tracey Hindmarsh.

With a remit spanning local supplier problems, connecting members to appropriate training and more, CPC's RPA service is ready to help you, whichever of these regions you happen to be based in - click here for more.
