The Purchasing Advisory Group for Further Education (PAG) is passionate about ensuring that CPC provides exceptional value and service to the FE sector. The group works by way of regional representatives, who bring discussion points and new ideas from you, directly to the national PAG group.

At these meetings the PAG group discuss your ideas and as a result of those discussions, decide what recommendations are to be made to the CPC Board. In this way, the procurement voice of all Colleges across England, Wales and Northern Irelands is heard and taken into account when considering CPC's future activities.

The PAG group also recognise that there is presently no forum for procurement discussion within FE outside of the CPC Jiscmail service and wish to offer an additional collaborative option to colleagues to discuss procurement in the wider perspective.

With this in mind a PAG LinkedIn group has now been established.

If you have a LinkedIn profile and are interested in joining the discussion group, you can apply for membership here or contact Pat Condon for further details.

As always, PAG need your input to drive change, share best practice and raise the profile of procurement in our sector.

Please do join and help to make this group a strong voice for procurement in FE.

Patrick Condon - FCIPS, PGCE Procurement and Legal Services Manager
