Who can use CPET?
A list of eligible users
Public Procurement Policy implementation support
CPET’s support on the UK government’s timber procurement policy is designed for the following types of public sector bodies and their suppliers:
- Central government departments
- Executive agencies
- Local government
- Non-departmental public bodies
- Direct suppliers to central and local government.
The UK Government, which is funding these services, restricts the use of the CPET Helpline service to the above categories. Private companies who are not eligible to use the free CPET Helpline or attend the training workshops can get advice on legal and sustainable timber procurement from a number of other organisations .
The workshops are available to a slightly wider audience. Full details of eligibility can be downloaded here.
