CPC are pleased to inform members that the Library Resources framework agreement has been successfully retendered and went live on 9th October 2020.

We are confident that this new offering gives clearer routes to market with the inclusion of a mini-competition template and an easy to access direct award mechanism. It will also allow members to benefit from substantial discounts off publisher’s list prices that are set for the duration of the framework.
