Civica secures top spot on another key Scottish procurement framework

28th February 2024

  • Civica named top ranked supplier on APUC’s framework for finance systems

  • The global GovTech provider secured first place on APUC’s FE colleges framework exactly one year ago, in February 2023 

  • The APUC (Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges) framework is the procurement centre of expertise for all of Scotland’s universities and colleges 

  • Further Education is a key market for Civica, which currently supports more than 65 colleges across UK, with its cloud based Civica College Management solution.

Civica has been named top ranked supplier for finance systems on the APUC Finance, HR/Payroll System(s) and Associated Services Framework, the national procurement platform which serves all of Scotland's universities and colleges.

This is the second key procurement framework win for Civica in just twelve months, with the global GovTech provider securing first place on APUC’s FE colleges framework in February 2023.

Being awarded the top ranked position means that colleges will be able to procure directly from Civica, without having to go through a costly, time-consuming tender process. Further Education is a key market for GovTech leader Civica, with the company currently supporting more than 65 colleges across the UK through its cloud-based student information management system, Civica College Management. Earlier this month, it was announced that West College Scotland, one of Scotland’s largest educational institutions, is rolling out the cloud-based digital technology to transform how it supports its students.

Scotland’s FE sector, where Civica is ambitious to grow, comprises 26 colleges across 13 regions supporting around 213,135 learners.

APUC (Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges) is owned jointly by all of Scotland's Universities and Colleges and provides a wide range of procurement related shared services to education institutions across the country.
