Corporate Supply Agreement Bc
A Corporate Supply Arrangement (CSA) is a convenient method of procurement that saves both time and money. As soon as a delivery agreement has been concluded, the authorized organization cooperates directly with the supplier and uses the prices already negotiated by Procurement Services.

From a taxpayer`s perspective, the benefits are reduced administrative costs and less need for the government to bear inventory.
