The third iteration of our UKUPC Market Insight Document providing detail on what is happening in national and international supply chains, has been emailed to members today. LUPC members will be able to download the document in the link provided by logging in when prompted.

Following your feedback, we have this time introduced an additional summary document. This, we hope, will make it easier to circulate key high-level information to those in your organisation who have an interest; the Market Insight document itself remains very detailed.

We recognise that as with Brexit and then Covid, the fast-moving situation in Ukraine is going to have a significant impact on our activity which will need our attention.  Whilst we don’t fully understand all the issues yet, there are many reliable sources who are reporting potential risks; Supply management here and here, Reuters here and SSCEU here to start with. The contracting leads from each consortium are meeting next week to consolidate information we have gathered on this topic specifically and further detail will follow. 

If you wish to share knowledge on this matter or have any particular questions that you would like answered, please get in touch.

As always, we hope this is useful. Your feedback is important to ensure we can continue to develop this document and make it more helpful with each edition.

Should you have any queries please contact  Emma Keenan.
