Tenet Education Services are delighted to have been selected as a preferred partner by the North Western Universities Purchasing Consortium (NWUPC) to deliver a comprehensive procurement support service for its members. This exciting new collaboration is designed to bring additional resources, efficiencies, value for money and innovation to the higher education sector.
Working with NWUPC
NWUPC pride themselves on offering their members a full procurement service that is responsive to their needs. Because some organisations have limited in-house procurement resources, NWUPC report that they receive regular requests from members to provide additional procurement support. While NWUPC provide first-class help and guidance to their members, they did not have the capacity to provide additional resources on the scale that was required; therefore, they decided to partner with Tenet Education Services to deliver a range of on and off-site procurement services. Now, they are excited to be able to offer their members enhanced procurement support on individual projects or an interim staffing basis.
