Beginning November 24th, information submitted by companies for enrollment in the Small Business Purchasing Program (SBPP) will be validated in the COMMBUYS Market Center. The validation process, conducted through an interface with the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR), will authenticate information from existing SBPP participants as well as all newly-registered vendors requesting enrollment in SBPP.

The Massachusetts Small Business Purchasing Program (SBPP) was established by Executive Order No. 523 on June 29, 2010. It was designed to increase state spending with participating small businesses by providing them special consideration when Executive Departments procure non-construction goods and services valued at less than or equal to $150,000. While eligibility criteria for SBPP has not changed, the new validation process will improve the overall integrity of this important government initiative.

You can find information about the Small Business Purchasing Plan, including eligibility criteria and interface-related resources at For further information about becoming a registered business with the Commonwealth, go to and select the Sellers’ community link.
