The report adds that GPOs “maintain high ethical standards and business practices that promote innovation, transparency in the bidding process and compliance.” The pro-GPO study counters an earlier investigation by the Government Accountability Office. Federal auditors questioned whether GPOs receive inappropriate administrative fee payments from vendors.
