Simplifying procurement by bundling university interests

Procurement for the community

By consolidating the interests of all universities, we can procure software cheaper and more sustainably.

For universities, negotiating contracts is a complex, time-consuming and regularly recurring process that has to be run separately with each provider.

We negotiate contracts with commercial providers on behalf of all universities. This gives us more bargaining power.

University members, students, lecturers and researchers therefore benefit from better terms and are able to find everything they need in one place.
