The Australian University Procurement Hub (UPH) represents a consortium of 13 universities. Through aggregated expenditure and improved process efficiencies, UPH has identified in excess of $55m of cost savings since it was launched in 2014. UPH members can also take advantage of improved spend visibility, deeper levels of collaboration and better market insights, among other non-financial benefits. “This is a model that should be promoted and expanded,” noted one judge.
Considering the broad scope of stakeholders, the outcomes achieved have been significant. This is a testament to the governance framework applied to the program, and the level of trust across participants.
