CPC membership passes 9,500 checkpoint


By Ashley Cox

CPC's climb towards 10,000 members reached new heights in May, as we were pleased to pass the 9,500 checkpoint, vindicating our staff's good work and the value of our services.

After celebrating our 9,000th CPC member in September, the current academic year has brought us more than 500 new members and we welcome all who have joined us over the past several months.

Likewise, we thank those who have entrusted CPC in the longer term, as we’ve continued to provide a wide selection of compliant, money-saving purchasing frameworks than span the education sector.

With a portfolio of more than 85 in all, including 15 recommended by the Department for Education, CPC frameworks can provide members with direction, support and value, allowing buying leaders to undertake more informed purchasing and to reap the benefits of our team’s procurement expertise.

CPC membership can connect your institution with vetted, approved and trusted suppliers, enabling your school, college, academy, university or trust to obtain quick and competitive purchasing quotes.

As well as our established and easy-to-use CPC Quote Tool and comprehensive CPC Sourcing Cloud (provided by Elcom), a number of Dynamic Purchasing Systems (DPS) are also at members’ disposal, adding to the number of user benefits that come with your institution’s CPC membership.

Among other resources, CPC members can enjoy one-to-one procurement, fully funded CPD accredited cources in procurement and the chance to obtain further funding for projects and purchases through our parent CPL Group's charitable objectives.

CPC membership is free of charge for FE, academy, school and free school institutions
