CPC is pleased to announce that the new PPE, Clothing and Uniforms framework went live on May 10th as scheduled. The framework will be in place for an initial period of 2 years from the 10th May 2020 to the 9th of May 2022, with two possible 1-year extensions up to 9th of May 2024.

There have been 14 successful suppliers evaluated and awarded a place on the new framework, with 8 suppliers per lot to ensure our members demands can be met at all times of the year. There are also more suppliers than before being awarded to the One Stop Shop lot.
