CPC Supplier Excellence Awards 2024


By Rana Holland

Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC) is delighted to announce the CPC Supplier Excellence Awards website is now officially live and open for submissions. 

There are fourteen, free to enter categories to choose from, each recognising an area important to our charity, and the event will reflect the essential role that suppliers play across our business and how much their contribution is valued by our community of over 10,000 members.

The CPC Supplier Excellence Awards will spotlight outstanding performance, innovation and collaboration of our valued suppliers. As a procurement charity, we are committed to building long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with our suppliers across our impressive supply chain of 1,400 suppliers.

We are proud to celebrate those who have gone above and beyond to deliver exceptional value for money, quality and customer service for CPC members, wile considering their social and sustainable impact as an organisation.

Suppliers are critical to Crescent Purchasing Consortium’s operational and strategic delivery and they play an integral role toward our vision of being the procurement partner of choice for the education sector and, through our work, helping the sector to enhance teaching and learning. In the past year alone, £441m has passed through our supply chain, with an impressive £3bn to date, placing us as one of the leading consortia in the UK. 

We are working in partnership with ConnectIn to bring you an extravaganza event, where shortlisted suppliers will come together on July 24th, 2024 at the Hilton Manchester. The awards will act as an enabler for suppliers to commit to continuous improvement, whilst fostering strong partnerships with our member community.

In addition, there are a number of sponsorship opportunities for the event, which will enable you to spotlight your brand and portfolio of services across the sector and supply chain. For more information, please contact Rana Holland, Head of Communications and Engagement via [email protected]
