UGAP, the union of public purchasing groups, operates mainly for the French State, local and territorial authorities, hospitals and the social sector.
UGAP’s overall objective is to contribute to the effectiveness of public procurement and the satisfaction of public entities.
In practice, the central purchasing body buys supplies and services intended for contracting authorities. This ”buy to resell” model involves recording orders, issuing invoices to customers, managing contracts (updating of references, price adjustment, etc.), and also placing orders to its suppliers with the payment of their invoices and settling any possible litigations. Moreover, UGAP can provide its clients contractual frameworks (public contracts or framework agreements), which they sign and execute.
UGAP therefore, represents a solution for optimizing suppliers and clients’ internal costs, but also helps to reduce the costs of tendering procedures, as well as the costs of deployment and contract management.
