A not-for-profit professional buying organisation owned by its Members, for its Members
LUPC - a member of Procurement England Ltd.
LUPC’s latest Procurement Capability Assessment (PCA) report shows significant improvement in the consortium’s performance during the last year, moving from 'Improved' to the top level of 'Superior'.
The PCA was originally developed by the Scottish Government to evaluate the performance of public sector organisations, and was adapted for use with buying organisations such as LUPC.
LUPC’s PCA was independently assessed by our colleagues at APUC, and reviewed our capability in key areas such as Leadership & Governance; Procurement & Sourcing; Contract & Supplier Management; and Performance Management. The results show further improvement in the consortium’s capabilities since our first PCA in October 2013.
LUPC gained particular marks for our advanced collaboration across different sectors, and for our improved commitment to sustainable procurement.
Dr Andrew Young, LUPC Chair and Chief Operating Officer at the London School of Hygiene &Tropical Medicine, said: “This is a fantastic result for LUPC and collaborative procurement in London. We should be justly proud of the efforts made by the LUPC team, and Members involved in our governance, tendering and supplier management processes – all of which have helped us reach the top performance level of ‘Superior’.
“We won’t be resting on our laurels – the challenge now is to maintain and improve our performance further, and the Board and I will be keeping a close eye to ensure this happens over the coming year.”
