Feedback Requested on White Paper from NAED SPA Task Force

NAED’s Special Pricing Authorization (SPA) Task Force has released a draft of its new white paper on, “Recommended Best Practices in SPA Set-Up & Updates.” The task force requests your feedback on the recommended best practices by Jan. 8, 2007.

Over the past few years, NAED has brought together teams of distributor and manufacturer members to streamline SPA processes. The SPA Task Force first developed best practices for SPA claim filing. Now, after soliciting new volunteers, the task force continues the effort with best practices for SPA set up.

NAED members volunteered many hours to help standardize the SPA Set-Up & Updates Process to make it more efficient for all channel partners. NAED would like to thank the efforts of the more than 40 volunteers who gave their time and expertise, participating in hour-long monthly conference calls and a two-day face-to-face meeting at their own expense.

Please email your comments on the best practices by Jan. 8, 2007, to NAED’s customer service.
