Becoming a Ceres Partner


The information below is intended to help suppliers and manufacturers understand our expectations as well as how they can become a Ceres Partner.


Ceres provides procurement management services for healthcare customers across the nation.

Ceres is authorized to negotiate and implement companywide, supplier contract, pricing agreements that provides our members with the “lowest total cost” for products and services. These contracts are negotiated to take advantage of our significant buying power. Contract suppliers are expected to offer their “best possible price” to Ceres.

Formal contracts are awarded to suppliers that can satisfy our business requirements and provide value, service and support to our internal and external members. Ceres and our suppliers work collaboratively to market the value and benefit of each contract while exceeding our member’s expectation.

Getting Started

You must first complete the Supplier Application.

We will review your information and keep it on file. When the time comes to do a formal bid, we will review the database for potential suppliers, and you will be contacted to participate in the bidding process. We will also use this database for occasional buys when looking for products not currently in our system.
