NJACP’s Preferred Vendors include businesses with whom NJACP has a:
- Strategic Partnership Agreement;
- Consultant Agreements; or
- Marketing Opportunities.
The NJACP Strategic Partner Program (formerly the Preferred Vendor Program) is a benefit exclusive to NJACP members. Through the NJACP Strategic Partner Program, NJACP identifies companies of various products or services tailored specifically to agencies serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities with a focus on cost savings, customer service, and improved quality of care.
Because of the collective purchasing power of NJACP members, individual suppliers of these products or services enter into a written agreement with NJACP to become a Strategic Partner. NJACP members will receive high-quality services and products at competitive prices. Strategic Partners must also provide special or exclusive benefits to NJACP members (such as special pricing or discounts; training or education; or other benefits).
As part of that agreement, NJACP often receives residuals from each Strategic Partner on the volume of a member business. These residuals are income to the Association and directly impact NJACP’s ability to continue with a reasonable membership dues structure.
Strategic Partners benefit from exposure and access to make a distinct impression on key executives of NJACP’s member agencies as well as the greater than 17 million employed by agencies throughout New Jersey.
The goal of the NJACP Strategic Partner Program is to create a positive and beneficial relationship with all parties involved: The Strategic Partner has opportunities to expand their business; NJACP Member agencies can obtain a high-value product or service at very competitive rates, and NJACP receives residuals which are used to help fund the mission of the association.
We are always looking to add strategic partners to the program. If you have any suppliers of goods or services who you know of that would be good candidates for the NJACP Strategic Partner Program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
