CentralSource now powered by Kinetic GPO

Oct 20, 2020

CentralSource is transitioning its group purchasing to Kinetic GPO, a Canadian based group purchasing organization (GPO) with diverse contract offerings for Canada’s public sector.

CentralSource, formerly SUMAdvantage, was created to harness the purchasing power of Saskatchewan’s hometowns. By joining forces with Kinetic GPO, the value for Municipalities of Saskatchewan members is expanded to include:

  • A greater selection of vendors
  • Leveraged national buying power
  • Additional resources                     
  • National expertise
  • Continued commitment to compliance
  • Stronger contracts

Municipalities of Saskatchewan members now have access to Kinetic GPO’s national contracts. GPO contracts are competitively bid, evaluated, and awarded using a fair, open, and transparent solicitation process that ensures compliance with the trade agreements. Information on Kinetic GPO’s contracts can be found by visiting their website or on LinkedIn.

To use Kinetic GPO's contracts, Municipalities of Saskatchewan members need to fill out a Kinetic GPO membership form. All completed forms can be sent to Shannon Dean. The membership form authorizes Kinetic GPO to send promotional information to members. Once the membership form is received, additional information will be sent out explaining how to utilize the new contracts.

Members can continue to access CentralSource programs, now powered by Kinetic GPO, on this website.

CentralSource staff will operate out of the Municipalities of Saskatchewan office in Regina as Kinetic GPO and will continue to provide the same levels of support that members have come to expect.
