Improved Buying Power

Our collaborative, shared services model provides a multitude of benefits to members — from reducing and containing costs and increasing spending power, to decreasing duplication and improving service quality and productivity.

GENERATING HIGHER VALUE: BY MEMBERS AND FOR MEMBERS

In 2017, we achieved new milestones in delivering financial savings and improved buying power through procurement and contract management and shared IT services.  

We measured annualized savings of $47 million in 2017 and $117 million, since 2013.  A significant portion of the savings is enabled through procurement and contract management.
