“I find In-procurement incredibly interesting. I receive specific magazines for my category areas and the University sector but this is the only magazine I receive which covers procurement generally and it is interesting to see what people and companies are doing within the sector and also the updates provided on changes in regulations and contract law cases.”

”I normally read it and share it with my colleagues. It’s a great magazine and I find the articles really interesting and helpful. The cartoon at the back normally goes down well with us as well, especially the bad jokes!”
