What is a GPO?

A group purchasing organization (GPO) is an organization designed to enable groups of independent customers, like charter schools, to combine their purchasing power to negotiate discounts with vendors.  GPO members have access to these deals and can purchase the same way they always have, only at a lower cost.

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
