Group Purchasing Organizations (GPO's)

Group Purchasing Organizations (GPO's) are an effective means for the University to secure goods and services. The UT System has implemented a rigorous process of evaluating and approving GPO's for use. Any of the the GPO’s listed below may be used. Using a GPO reduces the procurement cycle time and ensures we are utilizing partners that have been properly vetted and offer the University favorable pricing. If multiple suppliers offer the same product or service, your Buyer will still have to obtain informal quotes to ensure we are getting the most competitive price. However, if only one provider offers the product or service the Buyer can place the order directly with the contract holder.

To more easily locate vendors and/or products and services available via these GPO’s, you can now use this search tool to search by vendor name, products/services offered, or by the specific GPO. Simply click in the filter cell of the column you wish to search and enter the information you are searching. The tool will filter to any matching result.

If you need assistance or cannot access the information you are looking for, please contact your Buyer for assistance.
