What is a group purchasing?

Group purchasing is a purchasing strategy designed to enable groups of independent buyers with similar needs to combine their purchasing power to get discounts and other benefits on the goods and services they buy. Group purchasing organizations, or GPOs, manage the group purchasing process and negotiate contracts with vendors on behalf of the buyers they represent. A group purchasing contract is simply the agreed upon pricing and other benefits available to GPO participants through a GPO-selected vendor.

Announcing New Private School Group Purchasing Program

We’re leveraging our experience and the success of our charter school group purchasing program to help private schools as well. This new program will focus on the needs of private schools while increasing the buying power for all BuyQ participants! Read more about this exciting news and our mission to help schools across the country get the most out of their purchasing dollars.

Let's hear from some charter leaders:

“Besides cost savings and the quality of their vendors, BuyQ saves us a tremendous amount of time, because we don’t have to do an RFP and they negotiate pricing on our behalf.”

– Katrina Conley, Chief Operating Officer / Chief Financial Officer at Citizens of the World Los Angeles

“I really enjoyed being part of the RFP committee. BuyQ’s RFP process is extremely thorough, and they really understand the needs of charter schools.”

– Sarah Campbell, Senior Managing Director of Programs at EQUITY Education

“ If you have a question about a purchase, BuyQ will get an answer. You know you’re going to get what you’re buying, and if you don’t, that you have an intermediary to make sure you’re satisfied.”

-Chad Miller, Chief Business Officer, High Point Academy, Aurora, CO
