Civica secures top spot on another key Scottish procurement framework

  • Civica has been named top ranked supplier for finance systems on the APUC Student Management System 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 global 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.

    Across Scotland and the wider UK, our cloud-based solutions are helping colleges to adapt and thrive, ensuring greater levels of security, cost savings and more flexibility to deal with whatever challenges come their way.
