CIPS launches coronavirus hub

24 April 2020

CIPS has launched a dedicated coronavirus hub to offer support to procurement and supply chain professionals navigating the impact of Covid-19. 

The coronavirus pandemic is the “single biggest challenge faced by supply chains in the 21st century” and procurement and supply chains professionals are playing a key role, CIPS said.

In order to help those working tirelessly to mitigate the impact of coronavirus on their organisations, CIPS has launched its coronavirus hub to share the most up-to-date and relevant news and guidance procurement professionals need.

While an FAQ section will answer pressing questions, a series of webinars and podcasts will offer insights from across the whole profession, and sector spotlights will share how different sectors are managing during this period.  

The hub will also feature stories on the ‘procurement heroes’ going above and beyond to source essential goods and find innovative ways to keep businesses and supply chains operating. 

Ana Barco, group director, membership and marketing, CIPS said: “Individual members, sectors and organisations will all have their unique challenges but collectively as a global community we can solve many of the problems this crisis has thrown at us." 

“This is the time to lean on CIPS and fellow professionals to support you in the work you have to do to keep supply chains moving efficiently, from healthcare to the food industry to vital services.”

In order to support the hub, Supply Management will not be published, either in print or as a digital magazine, during this period. Instead, the SM editorial team will be redirected to produce content for the coronavirus hub to support the procurement profession. 

The situation will be reviewed on a regular basis and SM will return in its usual format at the appropriate time.

SM Daily newsletters will continue to arrive in your inboxes with the latest information so make sure you are signed up to receive it
