The Global Sourcing Association is the industry association and professional body for the global sourcing industry and home to the Global Sourcing Standard, a world-first for the provision of a portfolio of best practice methodologies and accreditation programmes for both buyers and service providers across the sourcing industry.
The GSA is a not-for-profit membership association with fully licensed, affiliate and associate members, and serves to share best practice, market insight and connections across the globe and bring the global community together in a wholly interactive manner for the first time. Its overriding objective is the ongoing development and dissemination of the standard and supporting portfolio of qualifications in order to improve the benefits and positive reputation, and therefore size, of the global sourcing industry.
Our vision is to grow the size and positive reputation of the sourcing industry and therefore we have a presence and provide guidance in The United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, Norway, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, Egypt, China, India and the United States.
We are passionate about excellent sourcing and throughout our 30 years have remained committed to advancing the sourcing profession and improving and growing the sourcing industry, by driving awareness, education, standards and thought leadership.
We are a membership organisation, representing the interests of companies and individuals which span the breadth of the sourcing industry: buyers, service providers and advisors.
We guide members through a code of conduct and guiding principles, raise standards through education and training, develop policies and represent the value of the broader industry.
Whether you need a skilled sourcing professional or wish to become one, the GSA is the leading body for developing the sourcing profession and industry.
