Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Group Purchasing Organization (GPO)?

Common in the healthcare industry, Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs) consolidate the purchasing power of a large group of separate entities and leverage the combined volume in order to negotiate discounts from suppliers of goods and services. Vendors offer price and other concessions to GPOs in order to access large groups of buyers at reduced marketing and promotion cost.

How can CCPA Purchasing Partners help my practice?

CCPA Purchasing Partners’ contracts offer significant upfront savings on vaccines, medical supplies and other purchases. Pricing with our vendors, including the vaccine manufacturers, is not dependent on what or how much you order. This enables your office to manage inventory more effectively. CCPAPP’s Board of Directors oversees planning and financial decisions, ensuring resources are used in the best interest of our members.

Do I have to purchase from all vendors that are part of CCPA Purchasing Partners?

No. Although we encourage taking full advantage of our negotiated contracts, our role is to provide you with competitive pricing. You decide which contracts to use. However, if you choose to participate in one of our vaccine contracts, your practice must adhere to any purchasing requirements the vaccine company may have in place.
