A not-for-profit professional buying organisation owned by its Members, for its Members
LUPC - a member of Procurement England Ltd.
Following the conclusion of a highly competitive tender process, LUPC has awarded the renewal of its framework agreement for the supply of Serials, Periodicals and Associated Services.
This agreement was tendered by a sub-group of the consortium’s Library Commodity Group, including representatives from the British Library, Royal Holloway, the Institute of Cancer Research, London School of Economics, Science and Technology Facilities Council, and School of Advanced Study. These Members were involved in developing the specification of requirements and supporting the tender process itself.
The new agreement has three approved suppliers: Ebsco, LM Information and Harrossowitz, and offers competitive pricing, flexible methods of call-off and the assurance that Members will benefit directly from any efficiencies made by suppliers during the course of the framework.
