Group Purchasing Organization
The NJOC Board strives to provide services and programs that increase the value of membership in NJSOM. To that end, the Society has established a contracting organization to help its clients save on the most costly products and services associated with the business of oncology. This entity has been separately incorporated as New Jersey Oncology Contracting, Inc. (NJOC). The Board negotiates contracts with suppliers to provide maximum value and benefit to our member practices. Contracts are currently in force with attractive pricing and support services for oncology pharmaceuticals and supplies. In addition, NJOC is always seeking new ways to be of service to its clients and welcomes ideas for any such new opportunities. By pooling the buying power of our members, NJOC is able to negotiate more favorable pricing and terms for those practices that choose to participate in NJOC contracts.
In 2002, NJOC entered into a preferred primary vendor agreement with Oncology Supply and ION for oncology pharmaceuticals and supplies and a range of value-added services. This contract has been extended and now runs through December 2024.

NJOC membership is open to all NJSOM practices, as well as other oncology practices throughout New Jersey and surrounding states.

How Do I Join?
