New contracts database launched

Aug 15, 2016

We’re pleased to announce that our new contracts database, HE Contracts, is now live!

HE Contracts, developed in partnership with the other regional higher education purchasing consortia to host information about all our collaborative agreements, replaces our previous database uniBuy. uniBuy is still accessible to Members, but only until the end of August.

HE Contracts offers Members a database that is easier to use and navigate, plus additional functionality such as the option to store ‘Favourite’ agreements; download quick agreement ‘Snapshots’; and easily see information on ‘How to buy’.

Owing to low levels of demand, the eMarketplace functionality included within uniBuy will no longer be included, but the new database supports an enhanced Request for Quotation (RfQ) function to help buyers get the very best value from consortium supply agreements.

Full information on how to access HE Contracts is available on the LUPC website, alongside details of training and resources to help Members get started.
