Do we have to be a nonprofit to use ACA PurchasingPoint?
No, you are using the program under the ACA, which is the nonprofit.
How is this program different from other group purchasing organization (GPO) programs?
This is one of the largest GPO programs with a $17 billion pricing leverage. No other program can give you this kind of savings.
Our camps are ACA camps. Can we purchase for our parent organization?
Yes – you can sign up your camp and add your parent organization as a ship-to location or you can sign up your parent organization separately on ACA's PurchasingPoint. Contact Member Services to coordinate this at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Can I have more than one of my staff registered to purchase from the program?
Yes. Your camp can have more than one person tied to the record.
What is my GPO ID?
It takes approximately three weeks to receive your GPO ID. Your GPO ID will show up on the right-hand side of your portal page. If you don't see it or have a question, email email@example.com .
How can my staff/employees access the companies that offer employee discounts?
Your camp must be a ACA camp and registed on PurchasingPoint. Any of your employees can register on PuchasingPoint under under your camp to gain access. They will click on the Vendors tab and select Employee Discounts. This will bring up all the companies that allow special employee discounts. They will simply follow the sign-up directions for each vendor.
