Information for - and about - corporate suppliers of services to H E Finance and Procurement teams

BUFDG is pleased to work with many suppliers of services to Finance and Procurement teams in Higher Education providers. We call these suppliers “supporters”.

We don’t sell space on our website or offer corporate membership, but we often work with supporters to undertake research projects, produce reports, and publicise their events. 

If you would like to offer BUFDG members some expertise or insight, the BUFDG Supporter Directory is the place to do it. The directory helps members to find suppliers of many essential financial and professional services, a link to their website and quick access to useful information, resources, and contact details.


We work with supporters to undertake research projects, produce reports, and publicise their events.

We don’t sell space on our website, sell speaker opportunities, offer access to our mailing list, or offer corporate membership. 

We are very grateful to organisations who are prepared to share their expertise and knowledge, and we can help maintain a Supporter Directory page for you. You can update this at any time by emailing

If you'd like to be featured on this page, have an idea for a project, survey, or report on an issue you think CFOs and their teams would be interested in, please contact We can then find out a bit more about your organisation and decide whether it would be a good fit.

For 2024, we are particularly interested in your thoughts on:

  • cost management
  • managing a financially resilient university
  • budgeting for and achieving Carbon Net Zero plans
  • maximizing returns on investments in a decarbonising world

but - we are keen to hear from you on anything else you think is relevant and topical.

We are often asked to find a time for supporters to address our members. Unless the issue is urgent and highly topical, we like to plan ahead and may invite you to speak at events, either in person or at an online Time to Talk seminar. If you would like to suggest a topic please get in touch with a title, info about the content of the webinar, and the proposed audience for the webinar. 

If we can’t fit you in to our schedule, we will suggest that you host a seminar on your own platform.

We will list your event on our calendar and promote to our membership. You are free to set the date and time of the webinar but we can provide guidance on which times might be better than others. Once you have set a date, you will need to provide us - at least 5 weeks in advance of the webinar date - with:

  • The title of, and info about, the content of the webinar, including whether or not it will be recorded and made available to those who couldn't attend on the day
  • The proposed audience for the webinar
  • A link to your own website for members to register for the event



If you are in a university and need to engage a new auditor, cash manager, investment manager, bank, lawyer, or any other finance-related supplier or adviser, the Supporter Directory is a good first port-of-call.  

Inclusion of these organisations does not imply BUFDG endorsement, but it does indicate that they are currently working with - or have recently worked with - other Higher Education Providers, and that they would like to hear from you.

Some of the organisations are included on procurement consortia framework agreements and you can find details from your institution’s procurement manager, your procurement consortium, or Crown Commercial Services.

You may also be able to find out more about colleagues' recent experiences of working with different sector supporters on the BUFDG discussion boards

If you have any questions about the Directory, please contact Matt.
