Institutional Procurement Services

The APUC IPS team consists of a core College Services team and wider IPS shared services.

The College Services team provides hands-on high-value / above EU threshold procurement tender and contract support to all colleges in Scotland. This, as well as bringing additional savings, reduces risk and assures legal compliance in procurement activities across the sector.

Every college is unique and the service is tailored to each client college's particular structure and needs, including solutions that take into account additional procurement shared services operating within institutions where applicable.

The IPS team also provides professional procurement shared service resources to colleges and universities across Scotland where APUC staff are embedded within institutions and operate as part of the local institutions corporate service teams.
