Higher Education Procurement Association (HEPA)

HEPA is the network for procurement professionals in the HE sector. It was created as a result of the challenge set out in the Diamond Report to enhance the expertise and capacity of university procurement. 

HEPA aims to:

  • Work to enhance individual competencies, knowledge and skills in procurement practices by providing face to face courses, e-learning, regional networking, competency frameworks, and much more
  • Provide leadership development programmes and learning opportunities
  • Develop and maintain an online repository of resources and information covering areas such as best practice, benchmarking, templates, and news
  • Provide procurement support beyond finance and procurement teams, including for procurement colleagues in HR, estates, IT, research teams and those with purchasing authority in academic departments.

HEPA is directed by the HEPA Management Board, and supported by a permanent member of staff, procurement specialist Emma Keenan.

It is delivered collaboratively by BUFDG and the HE purchasing consortia.

Procurement Maturity Assessments (PMAs)  are also available to all institutions, offering low-cost, detailed assessments of procurement capability to benchmark performance and drive improvement. Your PMA report will also help identify areas of the Academy that you may benefit from using.
