Do you have expertise related to an upcoming procurement? Would you like to have an impact on the development of a future statewide contract for commodities and/or services? If so, consider becoming part of a Strategic Sourcing Team (SST) to help in the contract development process.

As a SST member, you will perform activities ranging from needs identification to performance monitoring and assessment throughout the lifecycle of a procurement. Each SST is led by a Strategic Sourcing Lead (SSL), who oversees the procurement process and ultimately manages the contract. The contributions of the SST under the Lead result in a quality statewide contract that meets customer needs for the commodities and services the contract covers.

Strategic Sourcing Leads are an integral part of the Strategic Sourcing Office, under the Operational Services Division (OSD). The Strategic Sourcing Office handles more than $1 billion in statewide contracts for commodities and services, overseeing the entire contract lifecycle from bidding to negotiation to ongoing management. As contracts come up for renewal and as new needs arise, Strategic Sourcing creates new SSTs. In order to make sure the teams represent the strongest possible voice, individuals with subject expertise from various departments and public entities are sought to assist in the contract development process.

Upcoming procurement activity is available on the OSD website. If you are interested in participating on a SST, reach out directly to the Contact/Strategic Sourcing Lead listed on the OSD Procurement Schedule for the applicable contract.
