Proprietary RFP Process

The Biocom Purchasing Group RFP is the method used to vet and exclusively endorse our suppliers. It is one of the most critical elements of our business model and relies heavily on the expertise and time commitments of key individuals from our member companies. We maintain a comprehensive quality assurance strategy that is continuously reviewed by internal audit teams, regulators and members. Our diverse portfolio of competitively bid contracts cover flexible and integrated product and service offerings across the lab, facilities, operations, human resources, finance, data, communications and travel industry segments.
