Health & safety clothing or Essential Protective equipment? FPEIM programs can help.
As we all have seen, the demand for essential protective products has far outweighed the availability of supplies of the manufacturing capacities and transportation capabilities. The good news is that in addition to our current national standing fixed pricing agreements, our suppliers have also flagged our members as essential service providers.
Grainger Canada has set up an emergency response team, to evaluate incoming orders and to assist our members in getting their supplies ordered. Grainger has seen an increase of procurement agencies issuing RFQ’s which are proving difficult to respond to at a time when there is an everchanging and limited supply of resources. Our pre-tendered FPEIM Grainger program pricing remains unchanged even with the increased demand for pandemic supplies.
The ordering process is simple: First: fill out an opt-in form for the FPEIM programs you can access here: FPEIM Program Opt-in form (forms can be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org) Secondly: Send a list of supplies needed with a purchase order number to the FPEIM Client Relations Manager and we will work with Grainger to process your P.O through our established channels. The key is to have a bonified order with a Purchase Order in hand. Get orders in Early, Grainger Canada Safety Equipment
The FPEIM Staples program has been flagged as an essential service due to the critical work our members perform on behalf of their communities. The process uses the online Staples Advantage portal that our members are currently using. (Contact Staples Business Advantage online (Staples Business Advantage) or via phone 1-877-272-2121 with your order) We have been directed to have our members place orders on the Staples website even if it indicates that they are currently out of stock, the order will be put into a backorder que and filled once supplies are available. Supplies are being received daily from various manufacturers.
We strive to work hard for our members, and we will continue to do everything in our power to support our members during this difficult time.
