A not-for-profit professional buying organisation owned by its Members, for its Members
LUPC - a member of Procurement England Ltd.
LUPC’s partner consortia NWUPC has awarded a new agreement for Global Mobility Services, open to LUPC Members.
The new agreement offers Members the opportunity to procure services to help advise on managing the global mobility of staff, including international tax, regulatory obligations, employment law and immigration. Employees expecting to spend an extended period working abroad may also require guidance and support with issues such as relocation, housing, schooling and healthcare.
With higher education in particular becoming increasing global, managing the global mobility of staff – from short-term overseas placements to long-term relocations – can be complex and expensive. Quite often responsibility will be split internally between HR, Payroll and Finance. The new framework aims to support institutions with these issues and help free up resources, promote compliance and reduce costs.
The framework includes five lots, all with multiple suppliers:
Lot 1: Legal Services
Lot 2: Taxation & Accountancy Services
Lot 3: International Payroll Services
Lot 4: Domiciliation Services
Lot 5: Relocation Services.
