Since 2009, Future-tech has worked with 29 Universities throughout the UK and Ireland and have now achieved approved supplier status on the NEUPC framework agreement.
North Eastern Universities Purchasing Consortium Ltd (NEUPC) is a not-for-profit professional buying organisation owned by their members.
Future-tech was awarded the highest scores for price, quality and technical solution. Our submission was also among the most economically advantageous.
Benefits of procuring through NEUPC frameworks include reduced procurement timescales, more cost effective route too market and a higher level of efficiency throughout the whole procurement process. Suppliers who become part of the NEUPC community are offered a targeted route into institutions and procurement account management support. The framework agreement is designed to maximise third party expenditure within the higher education sector.
One to one meetings will take place twice a year with NEUPC and Future-tech to discuss communication and management operations and continuous improvement initiatives.
On the 3rd February 2016 NEUPC are hosting their first ever conference and exhibition ‘Be the Change, Make the Change’ that will focus on how members can innovate, manage change and gain stakeholder buy in to further advance collaborative procurement and further efficiencies. Future-tech will be present at the event and would welcome any High Education Clients to come along and speak with our Directors and Data Centre Consultants regarding any queries you may have.
Our aim is to work in collaboration with our clients and NEUPC to provide a cost effective and efficient route to procurement. Future-tech are delighted to have been awarded a place on the NEUPC Framework Agreement and feel that this will enhance our service provision and ensure the whole cycle of the procurement process will be greatly improved.
