About the new PAOC Purchasing Hub

Powered by the procurement team at Round Table Procurement Services (RTPS), the new PAOC Purchasing Hub is designed to help PAOC member churches and organizations better manage all their purchasing needs.

It not only includes negotiated solutions from an expanded roster of pre-qualified suppliers, but also tools and expertise to support all elements of good procurement practices.

Access to Expertise / Custom Projects

We understand that not all purchasing or supplier-related needs can be addressed by the pre-negotiated deals. It is commonplace that needs or opportunities will arise that are specific to your situation.

RTPS has the experience needed to help you find your own customized solution. Most of their day-to-day work involves just that – managing purchasing requirements specific to their non-profit clients.

Let RTPS be your go-to advisor for any purchasing-related or supplier issue. They can always be reached directly at paoc.purchasing@rtps.ca. They will help you right away if they can or, if more extensive support is required, can provide a project scope of work and fee quote.
