How is the site structured?
We have tried to keep the structure as simple as possible so that users can find their way around easily. The sections About Us, News and Events should be self-explanatory and are available to members and non-members alike.
Then there are some HEPA Member only sections, which contain some great resources:
Discussions - a series of topic based discussion boards where members can ask questions, post replies and 'like' comments. You can also sign up for daily alerts for these discussions, so that they come straight to your inbox.
Resources - we have broken this area down into several sub-topics, to make it easier to find the resources you are looking for:
Network - a list of all members, as well as their institutions. You can filter by region, role, mission group and more, then export the list if you need to.
Jobs - we list lots of procurement related jobs on the site. If you wish to post a job on the site, simply email the details to email@example.com.
My HEPA - you will find lots of useful content through the site, such as news articles, case studies, discussions and even jobs - on each page, you can add that page to your MyHEPA - so you can come back to it later. MyHEPA is also where you can update your profile, email preferences etc.
How do I register?
Simply click on the Register link in the top right hand corner and you will need to fill in a few boxes. Then your request comes into the HEPA office for approval and you will receive email confirmation if you are accepted.
How much does it cost?
HEPA Membership is at institutional level and is included in the BUFDG subscription - so your university needs to be a member. If you go to the Register page, and you will see a drop down list of institutions who are HEPA members. If your institution is not on that list, and you would like to become a member, then please get in touch.
Is this site only for Procurement staff?
No, any member of staff in a university can have access - although it is primarily aimed at procurement teams.
How does the MyHEPA work?
MyHEPA - you will find lots of useful content through the site, such as news articles, case studies, discussions and even jobs - on each page, you can add that page to your MyHEPA - so you can come back to it later. MyHEPA is also where you can update your profile, email preferences etc.
