We are extremely grateful to everyone who participated in the 2019 CPC Member Survey. The feedback we receive helps us to better understand your needs and shapes our approach going forward.
CPC members who completed this year’s survey could enter a prize draw to win a selection of prizes including:
"CPC make it very easy to look to them as a first port of call – their framework managers are friendly, approachable and knowledgeable, their suppliers are engaged and responsive and their solutions simple, easy to access, straight forward to understand and specifically tailored for education. Add to that the way they give back to their member institutions, promote and embed social value, sustainability and ethical procurement into their processes and it’s not hard to see why!"
Paul Emmett, Luminate Education Group
“I was really happy with the procurement of our minibus insurance through the CPC, lots of good information provided about the process in the framework and was quick to set up.”
Nathan Loveridge, Great Oaks School
"Brockenhurst College recently procured its gas and electricity utility contracts through the Utilities Procurement Group - a partner of CPC. We were impressed by the quality of service and support from UPG, and winning some vouchers at Christmas comes at an opportune time to reward College staff for their hard work throughout the year."
Limor Feingold, Brockenhurst College
“CPC have allowed us to purchase from fully compliant EU frameworks. They also provide advice on how to obtain best value for money. Pembrokeshire College have benefited immensely from the CPC and would highly recommend them as a route to purchase any service or goods. As an added bonus we are very happy to have won these vouchers and we will be using them to treat the department, so thank you very much.”
Donna Barker, Pembrokeshire College
“We find CPC very helpful in terms of advice and support. The ability to use their EU compliant frameworks saves us time and expenditure within our own procurement activities and ensures we remain compliant with procurement regulations. Regional seminars and training activities help us to network and to build up the knowledge of our own procurement staff.”
Sandra Wilson, City College Plymouth
"Leeds College of Building are delighted to be winners of the Google Home Mini, which will be raffled off at Christmas with all proceeds going to support a charity close to our hearts here at the College. We are very pleased to support the chosen charity, which will be Just4Children"
Nikki Davis, Leeds College of Building
"Fantastic frameworks, great support and now early Christmas presents!! CPC you’re the best!"
