Shared Procurement Services
Back to Top ↑
Launched on 22 January 2010 at Peacehaven Nursing Home, the Shared Procurement Services Pilot is a collaboration among partners comprising AIC, 30 VWO community healthcare institutions (charities) and SingHealth Group Procurement Office (SingHealth GPO) to bulk purchase medical supplies. The Pilot aims to achieve significant savings for participating charities by aggregating demand and consolidating purchases to enjoy volume discounts.
This initiative was first mooted in February 2009 by the ground-up effort, with AIC and SingHealth GPO providing the necessary support and infrastructure. Participating VWOs formed a Committee to make decisions and to evaluate the outcomes. The Committee will chart a 2-year growth roadmap for the pilot scheme and collect valuable data for future initiatives.Click here to read our Press Release.
