Purchasing Sense Makes Cents

Educational facilities are increasingly relying on group purchasing organizations to help reduce supply costs and improve operational efficiencies. Since 1997, HPSI has assisted colleges and universities track and claim manufacturer allowances. In 2008, HPSI also began to offer comprehensive purchasing programs and special contract pricing for college and university campuses, fraternities and sororities, K-12 educational facilities and other education related businesses.

Rich Turnbull of Oregon State University was one of the first to join HPSI Education’s full purchasing program. His words echo the experience of many others:

“Oregon State University has also joined HPSI, taking advantage of their full purchasing program. HPSI has been a Group Purchasing leader for the last 40 years and has helped OSU obtain the best overall pricing on all food and non-food related products. They are a great asset to OSU.”

HPSI Education offers members substantial savings on dietary, janitorial, paper, chemical and equipment products and services. Additional services include:

  • Data collection together with monthly, quarterly and bi-annual reports to assure proper use of contracts and programs
  • Funds dispersal services
  • Menu services
  • Monthly E-Newsletter
  • Assistance in preparing bid specifications and pricing comparisons
  • Special programs and seminars at HPSI’s Annual National Sales Meeting

And as always, HPSI’s local purchasing consultants, as well as our entire support team, will be there to make your experience a profitable and pleasant one.
