We began our work developing the office supplies program in December 2015, teaming up with purchasing partner Round Table Procurement Services (RTPS) to initiate the public Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The selection process was supported by our Supplier Selection Working Group, a volunteer group of dedicated nonprofit sector representatives with expertise in purchasing.
We explored our options for a program that would be attractive enough for larger organizations to consider switching to, yet flexible enough to accommodate smaller groups that wouldn’t be able to negotiate discounted items on their own. We wanted a partner who would understand our sector and would be flexible enough to adjust our core list of discounted items over time, matching our changing needs.
We are extremely pleased to announce that we have selected Staples Business Advantage as our partner for the new ONN Office Supplies Program.
