The Cigna Group values our suppliers and provides superior procurement services.
The Cigna Group℠ Sourcing and Supplier Management manages the purchasing, sourcing, and contracting activities for goods and services on behalf of The Cigna Group. The mission is to provide best-in-class procurement services based on these Guiding Principles:
Information provided by your company on the supplier registration form will be treated in a confidential manner and will be subject to reasonable safeguards against improper disclosure.
Completing a supplier registration form does not guarantee that your company will receive a request to bid or a contract from The Cigna Group Sourcing and Supplier Management, nor does it imply that your company has any type of procurement relationship with The Cigna Group Sourcing and Supplier Management, either now or in the future. Your company information will be transferred into our Supplier database. This database is used by our strategic sourcing specialists to locate potential companies that are capable of providing products or services to meet our business needs.
We will keep your company's profile in our database for a maximum of two years. It is to your advantage to resubmit an updated profile every 12 months or anytime your company's capabilities and product and/or service offerings change. Our supplier database is used by all of our sourcing specialists; therefore, your company's information will be made available for consideration on all sourcing activities.
If you currently provide product(s) or service(s) to The Cigna Group, please provide any updates through your current contact within The Cigna Group Sourcing and Supplier Management.
If you do not have a contact within The Cigna Group Sourcing and Supplier Management (i.e. have been working directly with someone within a line of business), please complete the registration form and specify with whom you have been working at The Cigna Group. Your information will be entered in our supplier database and routed to the appropriate manager for handling.
The Cigna Group seeks suppliers who support our strategic goals and objectives while continually looking for ways to manage our costs. The Cigna Group Sourcing and Supplier Management evaluates suppliers with regard to best value with a particular emphasis on quality, total cost, delivery, innovation and management expertise to meet ours requirements.

Compliance to The Cigna Group contract terms
Conflict of interest
Total cost of ownership/best value
