What We Do

In the UK, the combined spend of around 200 Higher Education institutions and over 1000 Further Education Institutions is in the region of £10 billion per year externally on goods, works and services, across over 28,000 Suppliers in Scotland, and an estimated 100,000 UK wide.

Sustainable procurement is a key focus in our sector, with good reason. Institutions have a responsibility to deliver value for money for their students – and students have a significant voice in determining what is important.

This portal is a central hub where all our sector suppliers can complete and store sustainability compliance data. This portal is the core supply chain sustainability tool supporting institutions and their suppliers in delivering a transparent, environmentally positive, ethical and socially responsible supply chain.

This portal has been developed by APUC as a member of UKUPC.
