A New Paradigm In Procurement
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. Round Table offers a wide spectrum of practical procurement solutions that will help your organization achieve cost savings and realize improved operational efficiencies.
We Are Not-For-Profit Procurement
We understand the needs of the not-for-profit sector are unique. Spending tactics and cost structures are heavily scrutinized, funder and other regulatory requirements can be strict. Round Table Procurement Services understands this. For 20+ years, we have helped many broader public sector (BPS) organizations embrace innovation and achieve savings and operational efficiency in their supply chain and procurement processes.
At Round Table, our practice is built on three core pillars:
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.
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.
Being able to leverage Round Table's knowledge on a number of important initiatives has been very helpful. In one instance they helped us find a supplier who has constantly performed above and beyond what was outlined in our agreement. In others there have been huge savings in terms of hard costs and time saved by reducing redundant operations for staff. It was one of the best decisions we ever made

Working with Round Table is really easy - "knowledgable" doesn't begin to describe them. They are 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 great deal - they were persistent and creative in their efforts to make it happen.

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 have been exceptional and I would highly recommend them!
