Supplier Information

The success of the CAPsource and MEALsource programs are based, in part, on collaborative relationships with our suppliers and working together to achieve best value for our Members and the patients they serve.

We’re pleased to offer a streamlined process to our supplier community, supported by leading technology partners, MERX and Bonfire.

Posted Opportunities on MERX

We post all opportunities to the MERX e-tendering website, allowing your organization a convenient, secure and fully audited environment where you can download solicitations for CAPsource and MEALsource opportunities. By subscribing to MERX, suppliers can be automatically notified of opportunities that match their business profile and get access to the solicitation documents at the click of a mouse. MERX agents are available from 7:00 a.m. to 8 p.m. (ET) to help suppliers with registration and provide support. They can be reached at 1-800-964-6379.
