Ensure Your Voice is Heard

Members serve on advisory boards and ultimately approve all contracts. This process addresses member requirements, creates alignment and ensures a strong commitment to contract adoption.

Advisory board members are fully engaged and participate in peer-to-peer review of products, suppliers and emerging technologies. Together we conduct a rigorous product vetting and approval process ensuring GPO contracts provide the best value, which we define as quality, safety, service and price.
