Transforming Collaborative Sourcing

Our goal is to deliver greater efficiencies and savings by offering a marketplace of competitively sourced hardware and software agreements through member-driven, collaborative, strategic sourcing for the public, post-secondary sector in British Columbia.  We measured a total aggregated, sector-wide savings/efficiencies of $51 million between 2013 to 2016 for the sector.

 

Aggregated Savings: Hardware and Software contracts

Our procurement processes aim to source service agreements that meet member requirements, provide the best overall price, minimize duplication and follow a process compliant with legislative and regulatory requirements. In 2015/16, we managed our existing vendor contracts, developed three new proposals and successfully sourced two new vendor contracts.
