With best in class pre-negotiated terms and conditions, our members get the best prices and services without having to spend time performing their own RFP.

Mistakes You May Be Making

Many organizations use their supplier’s general terms and conditions when negotiating their agreements. Price increases, fees, minimum orders, and payment terms are important negotiation points for an organization and are sometimes bypassed in the contracting phase.

Time Required

Performing RFPs and negotiating agreements with suppliers takes time and resources. Running an RFP requires sending out questionnaires, creating bid sheets, analyzing and comparing complex bid submissions, further negotiating rates, redlining contracts, and an implementation program. All of these steps can lead to RFPs taking longer than 12 months from start to finish. In some instances, RFPs never see completion as new projects arise and priorities shift.

By joining CenterPoint’s GPO, you are bypassing many of the time-consuming steps required to complete an RFP. We have leveraged our consulting and GPO expertise to contract highly competitive agreements for our members.
