The Operational Services Division’s Local Government Enablement (LGE) team recently was recognized for its innovative programs supporting municipal procurement at the 2018 National Association of State Procurement Officials’ (NASPO) Annual Conference in Long Beach, California.

LGE Account Manager, Patricia Burke, accepted the Silver Cronin Award for Procurement Excellence on behalf of the team, telling the crowd, “We first earned the trust of municipal procurement staff by listening to their challenges, then we were able to work with them to identify ways Statewide Contracts and COMMBUYS could address those challenges. Collaborating with municipalities to successfully transform purchasing practices from paper-driven to digital procurement was game changing and inspiring.”

If you would like to learn about incorporating COMMBUYS and Statewide Contracts into your municipal procurement process, please contact the LGE team at COMMBUYSEnablement@mass.gov.
