"MEMSA is excited to remind you about a partnership that will benefit all of our membership organizations. We have been with Savvik Buying Group for several years, the nation’s largest non-profit public safety Group Purchasing Organization (GPO), whose vast assortment of contracts and programs can assist you in saving time and money.

For those of you who don’t recognize the Savvik name, many of you may know them as NCEMSC, North Central or just “the co-op.” They rebranded last year to Savvik Buying Group and have been in business since 1997. They represent over 4,700 public safety agencies in the United States and beyond. All MEMSA organizational members can use as many, or as few, of these programs and bids as you like with no requirements of any kind for your service.

Savvik recognizes your independence to buy from who you want, when you want, and they make sure that your freedom is paramount in its agreements. Many of these programs are already bid and awarded and you can simply link to the contract of your choice. But it is not just agencies that can save with Savvik. There are programs like AT&T, Best Buy, and Grainger that service employees and individual MEMSA members can utilize as well.

What also attracts us to partner with Savvik is the revenue share program that will help our organization. As a non-profit, Savvik not only supports the industry with grants to help projects like Community Paramedicine and Benchmarking, but they share a portion of their process with the members who purchase from them. So every time that you are using a Savvik contract that helps save time and money, your supporting MEMSA as well. It is a real win, win for all involved.

If you have any questions you can contact Mickey Schulte, Executive Director of Savvik, at or call him 713.504.7737. They are here to help us.

Please give these Savvik programs a review and help support MEMSA!"
