We are a not-for-profit consultancy that helps university procurement and finance teams across the UK. We help procurement functions increase their effectiveness, efficiency and the value for money they deliver.
Universities are under incredible pressure to deliver greater value for money with decreasing budgets and resources. To meet this challenge, our clients ask us for objective insight to help them find the right solutions. Our clients contact us for support to deliver projects and programmes across all areas of procurement. We also provide the sector-leading Procurement Maturity Assessment (PMA+) Programme.
As a charity, we are of the HE sector and for the HE sector. Our clients have access to our experience and knowledge of HE and developments gained over 50 years. We work closely with our sister divisions, SUMS Consulting and the Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium, to provide insights on best practice from across the UK. Our team combines blue-chip and ‘big four’ consultancy experience with in-depth knowledge of the HE sector.
Why are we the best people to help you?
We know one size does not fit all! We’ll spend the time it takes to understand your strategic goals. Our HE expertise means we hit the ground running and understand your unique challenges. As a result, we can help you develop sustainable and impactful solutions.
