6th Jan 2021

CPC note, with regret, that the country has been placed into a national lockdown for a second time.  This communication is provided to you to allow you clarity on the working practices which we will be adopting during this period (initially until mid-February 2021).

All CPC employees, in line with new Government guidance, have been asked to work from home and a ban on travel has been implemented with immediate effect.  You will be aware that CPC offer a range of support from our team of Regional Procurement Advisors who under normal circumstances would visit customers to provide advice and guidance and our team of Category Managers who would on occasions attend meeting as guest speakers.  All CPC employees have access to Microsoft Teams and as such we can facilitate video calls with any customers needing our support as a direct replacement for face-to-face meetings. 

CPC will remain open for business, as we did during the first lockdown during 2020, so please be assured that your procurement support is still available to you.  CPC is a small education sector owned charity and we trust that through the continued provision of our services, that we can rely upon your continued support to use our frameworks and our services during these times. 


Yours faithfully

Peter Brewer MCIPS

Managing Director
