    will receive the BPAA Foodservice rebates.

    SYSCO also provides a full line of value added resources. These include eSYSCO
    online ordering, business reviews, menu engineering and design, cost of goods
    calculation, proper ordering and inventory management.

    IMPORTANT: If you are buying from SYSCO, it does not mean you will receive
    benefits of the partnership. ALL centers must request to be linked to the BPAA-
    SYSCO program for rebates. ALL centers wishing to enroll in the margin-based
    pricing must have a fully-executed contract between the local SYSCO house and the
    center. Moreover, all centers need to verify with BPAA that they are enrolled in either
    the full or partial program.

    To enroll or check enrollment, contact the Smart Buy Department.
