How much time is your organization spending trying to find the best deal on office supplies? Paper? Toner? Or even pens? Are you surprised by the amount of money that you’re paying each year for everyday office supplies? We know that office supplies are an expense that nearly every organization incurs. In addition, the process of buying these supplies is often an unseen cost, both in time and money.

When we started the ONN Purchasing Program (ONNPP), it was clear why discounted office supplies should be one of our first key offerings to the network.

Our sector has over 55,000 organizations employing 600,000 full-time and 400,000 part-time workers. When you consider the dollars spent on office supplies – ranging annually between $200 and $1000 per employee – it’s very clear that this is an area of spending that we can be thinking about more strategically.

The ONN Office Supplies Program

We are thrilled to launch the ONN Office Supplies Program. This new ONN Purchasing program offering comes hot on the heels of the successful ONN Employee Benefits Program launch in May.

We began our work developing the office supplies program in December 2015, teaming up with purchasing partner Round Table Procurement Services (RTPS) to initiate the public Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The selection process was supported by our Supplier Selection Working Group, a volunteer group of dedicated nonprofit sector representatives with expertise in purchasing.

We explored our options for a program that would be attractive enough for larger organizations to consider switching to, yet flexible enough to accommodate smaller groups that wouldn’t be able to negotiate discounted items on their own. We wanted a partner who would understand our sector and would be flexible enough to adjust our core list of discounted items over time, matching our changing needs.

We are extremely pleased to announce that we have selected Staples Business Advantage as our partner for the new ONN Office Supplies Program.
