Commonwealth Contract Forms RevisedEffective October 25, 2019, several contract forms have changed:

  • Commonwealth of Massachusetts Standard Contract Form, Instructions, and Contractor Certifications;
  • Commonwealth Terms and Conditions; and
  • Commonwealth Terms and Conditions for Health and Human Services.

These forms are jointly issued and published by the Executive Office for Administration and Finance (ANF), the Office of the Comptroller (CTR), and the Operational Services Division (OSD) as the default contract forms for all Commonwealth Departments when another form is not prescribed by regulation or policy. The new forms are available on the OSD Forms page, along with several related FAQs. The Expenditure Classification Handbook identifies which object codes require the use of these forms and the State Finance Law and General Requirements Policy identifies the use of these forms by state departments.

All departments using COMMBUYS must update their document libraries to include the new contract forms to ensure the correct form is used.

Questions regarding these forms should be directed to the OSD Help Desk at 888-MA-State (627-8283) or to the CTR Solution Desk at 617-973-2468.
