UNA Purchasing Solutions helps businesses and organizations save time and money on the products and services they use every day from the suppliers they trust.


A horizontal indirect spend GPO succeeds in reducing procurement costs by aggregating supplies and services used by a broad market spectrum of member client organizations.

The resulting combined buying power helps the mid-size and larger member organizations save money

on their purchases of categories such as: temporary labor services, electronics, office products, furniture, housekeeping supplies, food service, energy, uniform & laundry services, pest control, and even expedited parcel delivery.

By leveraging the buying power of businesses or members of an

organization you can achieve or have access to:

  • Cost savings
  • Time savings
  • National account service status
  • High-quality, pre-screened offerings that meet the member or group’s needs
  • Special promotions from vendors
According to an analysis by SpendMatters, 20% of the Fortune 1000 use buying consortiums and 85% of the time, see 10% or more in savings. The suppliers offer preferred pricing, terms, special off-invoice incentives, rebates and higher service standards. Indirect spend - spending not directly tied to the creation of a finished product or service - can make up to 40% or more of an organization's total expenses. We leverage $55 billion in spend through 150,000 customers and over 1,500 suppliers and manufacturers. UNA Purchasing Solutions has been featured in Forbes and Inc Magazine. We save our customers an average of 22% on all of their indirect spend.
