Introducing our RPA team for a new academic year


Weeks into this new academic year, we thought it might be an opportune time to re-introduce our Regional Procurement Advisors (RPAs); a team of travelling procurement specialists, providing a free of charge service equipped to assist CPC members in their day to day business activity. 

Our RPAs can provide registered CPC members with potentially invaluable face-to-face guidance and support in their own locale, empowering institutions to make the most of their CPC membership, while providing your employees with hands-on help and support

The RPAs can deliver procurement-based presentations to staff and stakeholders on site, while remote/online support is additionally available, completing an extensive support offering that brings CPC’s knowledge and knowhow direct to your door, in the lead-up to new Procurement Bill reforms.

Our team of friendly RPAs covers much of mainland Britain (as well as Northern Ireland), while the advisors’ respective regional focus allows for a superior awareness of the specific factors at play in each patch.

From local supplier issues to regulatory compliance, by way of good practice advice, the RPA in your area can help smooth the path of your procurement journeys, with a host of resources in tow, as well as the ability to direct members to external services.

Furthermore, the RPAs can support CPC members in a collaborative, networking setting via CPC’s regular, regional Procurement Advisory Group (PAG) meetings, which unite peers and professionals to pool procurement knowledge and ideas.

A new offering to our free support service is ‘PAG Presents’, a series of monthly webinars open to all PAG and CPC members.

Each webinar will place a focus on a series of hot topics, delivered by our team of experts and suppliers across our supply chain.

Click to register for the first 'PAG Presents', to take place on Tuesday 31st October.
