We go beyond traditional practices to get great results

Our Approach

Most procurement professionals are very good at the core purchasing skills - negotiation, sourcing, contracts, analysis. However, our experience has led us to broaden our approach beyond traditional practices to achieve maximum benefits for our clients. Our professional practice is built on three core pillars:


CAREFUL COLLABORATION

THE BEST SOLUTIONS COME
FROM WORKING TOGETHER


Sometimes, organizations fail to bridge the gap between the tools and resources staff need and what is available. Round Table helps clients achieve notable improvements by expertly managing cross-department decision-making internally and partnerships with suppliers, service providers and even other nonprofit organizations externally. Collaboration is one of the greatest opportunities nonprofit organizations have to achieve cost efficiencies.

THE SOLUTION SHOULD FIT YOU,
NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND


The nonprofit sector has reason to think about procurement more than ever before. However, in an effort to spend money responsibly, this sometimes leads to overdoing it. Smart alternatives to cumbersome processes do exist (you don’t need three quotes for everything!) Round Table works with clients to continuously identify and leverage such opportunities and achieve long-term benefits.

SUPERIOR SERVICE

THE MOST SUCCESSFUL SOLUTIONS
COMBINE EMPATHY WITH EXPERTISE


Our clients are focused on impact and pressed for time. We deliberately take a “hands-on” approach to procurement initiatives to ensure great results and to make life easy for our clients. Over the years we have become an extremely efficient team, saving clients increasingly more time, money and unnecessary frustration.


“Organizational Procurement is a tight balancing act between 'cost and quality' on one side and 'time and compliance' on the other side, yet a seasoned procurement specialist keeps it evenly balanced.”

TESTIMONIALS

The Staff at Round Table are professional and easy to work with- they simplify what is complex, they provide sound advice and are a pleasure to work with. All my experiences with RTPS has been exceptional and I would highly recommend them!

Working with Round Table is just really easy - "knowledgeable" doesn't even begin to describe them. They're great at listening, great at understanding, putting themselves in our shoes as business owners. I always felt like they were in my court to get a good deal - they were persistent and creative in their efforts to make it happen.

Director of Operations and Integration

Woodgreen Community Services

Being able to leverage RTPS' knowledge on a number of procurement initiatives has been very helpful. In one case we ended up with a supplier partner that went above and beyond the scope of work. In others, there have been huge time savings on AMI'semployees' time required - that's obviously extremely beneficial - and cost savings. It was one of the best decisions we ever made!
