About The Global Sourcing Association
The Global Sourcing Association is the industry association and professional body for the global sourcing industry. We are the home of the Global Sourcing Standard, a world first for the provision of a portfolio of best practice methodologies and accreditation programmes supported by both buyers and suppliers of sourcing.
The GSA is a not-for-profit membership association with fully licensed, affiliate and associate members, and serves to share best practice, trends and connections across the globe bringing 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.
The Global Sourcing association has a presence across the globe and provides guidance in economies such as The United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, Norway, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia, Egypt, China, India and the United States and many more.
We are passionate about excellent outsourcing and throughout our 30 years have remained committed to advancing the outsourcing profession and improving and growing the outsourcing 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 outsourcing industry: buyers, suppliers 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 outsourcing professional or wish to become one, the GSA is the leading body for developing the outsourcing profession and industry.
