In Fiscal Year 2016, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts spent more than $1.4 billion on goods and services available on Statewide Contract. Is it the right time for you to go for a slice of that pie?

Join the Operational Services Division and local government purchasing and procurement at a vendor fair designed to answer common questions about becoming a Statewide Contractor and explain the process of doing business with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Prospective vendors are invited to attend and hear short presentations from OSD’s Supplier Diversity Office, COMMBUYS Help Desk, Strategic Sourcing Team, and local government officials. After these presentations, representatives of the speakers’ organizations will be available to meet with vendors individually to provide information pertaining to their areas of expertise, to include:

  • COMMBUYS registration, navigation, and profile management;
  • Becoming certified as a diverse or small business and ways to use those certifications;
  • The government procurement process at the state and local level; and
  • Available contracting opportunities.

For additional information, email the Operational Services Division at osdoutreach@state.ma.us.
