How are contract decisions made?

Contract decisions are member-driven through our member advisory committee process. Yankee Alliance staff gathers information about suppliers; products and pricing that committees require to make informed decisions. Additional factors such as minority vendor status are also considered. New technologies that demonstrate significant advantages over current technologies are particularly encouraged.

Contracts are awarded via the committee process based upon the committee's overall evaluation of price, quality and additional factors.

Do you have a diversity program?

Yes. Yankee Alliance strives to support small (S), minority (M), veteran (V), and women (W) owned suppliers. Suppliers that operate as S, M, V, or W will be so noted and considered throughout the award process. We strive to follow the latest supplier diversity best practices.

How do I know your contracts are ethical? Do you have a code of conduct?

Our Board of Directors has adopted a Code of Conduct which clearly delineates the way in which the organization will conduct itself in contracting activities and its dealings with suppliers and business partners. Our code of conduct affirms our commitment to high standards of ethical practices. More information can be found on our Ethics & Compliance page.

Yankee Alliance believes that any successful relationship, including the negotiation process, requires that both parties follow similar guidelines in the way they conduct business. These guidelines can be found in our Supplier Expectations overview.

Is Yankee Alliance a member of the Healthcare Group Purchasing Industry Initiative (HGPII)?

Yes. To further our commitment to the highest ethical standards, Yankee Alliance is a member of the Healthcare Group Purchasing Industry Initiative (HGPII), an organization of the nation's leading group purchasing organizations founded in 2005 to promote and monitor best ethical and business practices in purchasing for hospitals and other healthcare providers. Members of HGPII adhere to core principles of ethics and business conduct.

In 2010, the HGPII CEOs voted unanimously: (i) to activate a formal process to ensure prompt and fair resolution of business partners complaints regarding a GPO’s purchasing process; and (ii) to implement an independent advisory council. More information about the evaluation process can be found here and the latest Yankee Alliance Public Accountability Questionnaire can be found here.
