The Operational Services Division has revamped the COMMBUYS Hall of Fame Program to make it more inclusive and also to incorporate a broader array of activities that are representative of successful COMMBUYS implementation. Among others, the new COMMBUYS Loyalty Program will acknowledge catalog ordering, transacting business from yet unexplored Statewide Contracts and/or vendors, RFR bid posting and contract award, and qualified training. COMMBUYS organizations automatically will be entered to win badges at five levels of achievement across nine categories. Fiscal Year 2017 activity (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017) will be used to calculate each organization’s baseline. This data will be shared in the coming weeks, along with the criteria to earn badges and advance to higher levels within each category. In the meantime, take a look at the new COMMBUYS Loyalty Program categories and get ready to participate!

Purchasing

  • Savvy Shopper – One point for every Purchase Order: Catalog, G2B, or Open Market (excludes RPA)
  • Historian – One point for each RPA-eligible transaction entered into COMMBUYS
  • Contract Explorer – One point for every unique Statewide Contract purchase
  • Vendor Explorer – One point for every unique Statewide Contract vendor utilized for a purchase

Procurement

  • eProcurement Pro – One point for every RFR posted in COMMBUYS (Note: Executive Departments also must post the bid award in COMMBUYS – a best practice for all organizations. Nonprofit organizations are not eligible to post bids in COMMBUYS.)

Organizational Growth

  • Starting Line – One point for a new buyer organization activated with at least one Basic Purchaser
  • Team Builder – One point for every unique PO/Department Location added to the organization

Training

  • Sourcing Scholars – One point for each staff member who has completed the Strategic Sourcing Certificate Program. (SSCP is geared toward organizations following 801 CMR 21.00.)
  • Thirst for Knowledge – One point each time a staff member attends designated training
