The procurement department at Bright Horizons’ primary concern is to deliver high quality goods and services to our centers, schools and field personnel and to ensure the smooth operation of the complete supply chain.  The procurement department works with suppliers to manage:

  • Product and service specifications
  • Supplier bidding, selection, negotiations and contracting
  • Purchase order system and reporting
  • Warranties, supplier agreements / contracts

The success of our suppliers is measured against continuous improvement as it relates to process, pricing, product, and promotion.

These measures combine to create a unique relationship between our department and our suppliers.
