Thank you for submitting your information

The next step will take 2-4 weeks. An EPS Procurement specialist will review the information you have provided and respond to you.

For categories that EPS is not actively reviewing, EPS will keep your information on file for future review. For categories where EPS has existing suppliers, EPS will compare your information to our existing arrangement, and if warranted, EPS may undertake a category review. Where EPS is conducting an active review of the category, you will be invited to discuss your information and may be invited to participate in an RFP.

The typical outcomes of our review are the selection of your organization as a Selected, Preferred or Exclusive supplier partner. Selected partners are those that EPS maintains a list of suppliers for our members with no specific direction on which supplier our members use. Preferred partners are on a shortlist, and EPS members are directed to use a preferred supplier to meet their needs in that category. An Exclusive supplier partner is the only designated supplier for that category, and all members are directed to use that organization.
