Procurement Strategy Groups

The purpose of APUC's Procurement Strategy Groups for universities and colleges (PSG-U and PSG-C) is to:
  • formulate preferred procurement strategies to inform APUC's contracting priorities;
  • be the forum for agreeing changes to sector-wide procurement processes and changes to the sector procurement manual;
  • form ad hoc sub-groups to work on specific initiatives; and
  • appoint members for User Intelligence Groups (UIGs) and to constantly review those memberships.
