Upcoming regional PAG meetings

This October and November, CPC will be running the next round of Procurement Advisory Groups (PAG’s) for our members up and down the country.

New to the term PAG, fear not, the group works by way of regional representatives, who bring discussion points and new ideas from the area. At these meetings it is decided what recommendations should be put to the CPC Board. In this way, the procurement requirements of all institutions is heard and taken into account when plotting CPC's future activities. 

As a group, PAG are passionate about ensuring that CPC provides exceptional value and service to the sector. They need your input to drive change and cement best practice where necessary. 

On the agenda for the next round of PAG’s, we are focusing heavily on Sustainability, with guest speakers including Dukefield Energy, who will be giving an energy market update and highlighting work supporting members with decarbonisation, along with the Association of Colleges (AoC) who will be giving a sustainability roadmap update.
