OSD consistently looks for Department and Municipal buyers to participate on a Strategic Sourcing Services Team (SSST) and play an integral role in developing a new Statewide Contract.

Team members engage in a variety of activities, including needs identification, writing/developing the RFR and specifications, bid evaluation, and contract award, as well as performance monitoring and assessment throughout the lifecycle of the procurement. Travel into Boston is not required.

View OSD’s Procurement Schedule to learn about our upcoming Statewide Contract activity. Reach out to the listed Strategic Sourcing Lead to express interest in joining a team.

OSD has a more immediate need for SSST members in these two areas:

  • Hardware Products and Supplies (successor contract to FAC99)
  • Propane (successor contract to ENE35)

If you are knowledgeable or interested in either of these areas and would like to serve on a SSST, contact Sara Urato at 617-720-3319.
