Groups

Network with purchasing and supply professionals

Our groups enable members to share their experience and knowledge of specialist subject areas. Through our group network, you can interact with like-minded professionals and exchange information and ideas.
Each CIPS group has a specific industry focus – for example, financial services, construction, healthcare or defence. By signing up to one of these groups, you can extend your network and engage with other procurement specialists in your field.

 

The CIPS Aerospace and Defence Procurement Group (ADPG) was formed to help facilitate discussion on procurement and supply chain issues within the aerospace and defence sector.
