The ink has dried on another CPC buying framework, with the activation of our new, two-lot Stationery, Print & Education Supplies offering.

Adding to a continually-expanding catalogue of compliant agreements available to our 9,500+ registered members, our Stationery, Print & Education Supplies framework provides procurement support and assistance on a free-of-charge basis, while offering options to award that target superior value for money.

Its first lot is serviced exclusively by industry specialists Banner and acts as a one-stop shop for Stationery and Education Supplies, covering compliant provision of a extensive range of resources, encompassing everything from day-to-day classroom items to PPE purchases, janitorial solutions and more.

Expanding the agreement’s wide-reaching scope, the second lot provides a plenitude of procurement options for CPC’s member institutions to engage, initiating value-driving competition between its six suppliers, all vetted and approved in the framework’s formation process. Focusing its remit on Paper, Print & Specialist procurements, this latter lot includes Antalis, Banner, Lyreco, the Premier Paper Group, Springfield Business Papers and WL Coller as its supplier selection.

The new framework agreement was finalised this summer and went live for CPC members’ use on 1st September, with finishing date of 31st August 2025 (pending an optional, 12-month extension). Plenty of further information related to the Stationery, Print and Education Supplies offering can be found here.
