In addition to our other membership benefits, MEMSA is excited to promote its partnership with the Savvik Buying Group that will benefit all of our organizational members!
Savvik Buying Group is the nation’s largest non-profit public safety Group Purchasing Organization (GPO), whose vast assortment of contracts and programs can assist you in saving time and money.
For those of you who don’t recognize the Savvik name, many of you may know them as NCEMSC, North Central or just “the co-op.” They rebranded a few years ago to Savvik Buying Group and have been in business since 1997. They represent over 6,500 members in the United States and beyond. All MEMSA organizational members can use as many, or as few, of these programs and bids as you like with no requirements of any kind for your service.
Savvik recognizes your independence to buy from who you want, when you want, and they make sure that your freedom is paramount in its agreements. Many of these programs are already bid and awarded and you can simply link to the contract of your choice.
What also attracted us to partner with Savvik is the revenue share program. As a non-profit, Savvik not only supports the industry with grants to help projects like Community Paramedicine and Benchmarking, but they share a portion of their process with the members who purchase from them. So every time that you are using a Savvik contract that helps save you time and money, you are supporting MEMSA as well. It is a real win, win for all involved.
