When creating and posting bids in COMMBUYS, proper commodity code selection is fundamental to maximizing vendor quote responses. OSD’s UNSPSC* webinar for buyers – a one-hour, online class – reinforces the importance of commodity codes and demonstrates how to search for and add suitable codes to your bid solicitations in COMMBUYS. Time also will be allocated to review how to locate and notify vendors that match UNSPSC selections. The session will close with a question and answer period. Participants will receive information to connect to their training session via email.

Register for the course, offered on February 8, March 15, and May 2.

If you have questions about the webinar, send an email to OSD Training at osdtraining@state.ma.us.

*The United Nations Standard Products and Services Codes (UNSPSC) is a global products and services classification system that OSD utilizes to notify businesses about opportunities posted in COMMBUYS.
