Why Choose SUPC?

We help universities and colleges buy smarter. Members use our frameworks and support services to make sure their procurement activities deliver value for money to students, staff and wider communities.

Aside from the benefits of membership, SUPC is part of the Southern University Management Services (SUMS) group. As a not-for-profit and charity, we are part of the sector we are here to support. Through our other divisions – SUMS Consulting and the Procurement Shared Service – we help universities improve performance across all professional services and SUPC members benefit from our expertise garnered over the last 50 years.

Our subscription model and commitment to return the majority of member-earned marketing premium on organisational spend means many of our members are able to partially or fully cover the cost of their membership – plus some!
