*This framework is presently being retendered with an anticipated launch date of 1st February 2021. Please contact Gary Sadler for further details.
CPC members can procure insurance for colleges and/or insurance-related services and products directly from insurers, or via brokers, or a mixture of both using this framework.
College members saved an average of 40.16% on their annual insurance premiums in 2019 (data and feedback received on tenders undertaken in 2019 for both repeat and new users).
Over a typical three or five-year long-term agreement (LTA) the colleges stand to save between £2.2m and £3.7m which can be reinvested into other areas within the institutions, delivering a better educational experience for their students.
The framework provides CPC members with college insurance covers which include but are not limited to:
