How will the Collaborative Procurement mark be used?

The Collaborative Procurement mark will be used to help signpost to a wide range of audiences across the public sector, where value for money savings can be found.

The CP mark can be applied to:

  • Collaborative frameworks / contracts which are endorsed by their CCB and which deliver benefit to the collaborative category strategy
  • Category-specific marketing literature, produced by a participating organisation on behalf of the programme
  • Procurement guidance and Procurement policy
  • Best practice buying guides and Procurement toolkits
  • General Marketing of the initiative, product or output including newsletters, flyers, event and presentation materials, stand banners, photography, media articles
  • Letter-heads, email content, email banners, email headers, and email 
  • footers relating to the initiative, product or output 
  • Web site pages, Web portals, online tools and electronic systems

Those initiatives outside the pan-government Collaborative Procurement programme and suppliers to government are not permitted to use the mark.
