Sector Procurement Landscape

Higher Education Procurement Association (HEPA)

Purpose Scottish HE/FE Procurement Representatives
Launched in January 2015 at a meeting in UCL, this group can trace its origins back to the Association of University Procurement Officers. It now is hosted by the British Universities Finance Directors Group (BUFDG). It exists to share and develop best professional procurement practice and provide tools and development paths for procurement professionals across the UK. This group was formed from the merger of the Higher Education Procurement Academy and the Professional Procurement Group. It also acts as the representative body for procurement leaders across English HE and works in partnership with APUC and HEPCW to provide a UK wide representation where appropriate.
