The Non-profit Purchasing Program was developed to allow eligible non-profit organizations to use Statewide Contracts to purchase commodities and services. These contracts offer pre-negotiated terms and competitive pricing in a range of categories, from office supplies, technology products, and landscaping, to groceries, athletic equipment, and pest management services. Statewide Contracts offer significant savings opportunities to non-profit buyers.

COMMBUYS, OSD’s market center, makes purchasing even easier with online access to the thousands of products and services on Statewide Contract. And now, eligible Non-profit Purchasing Program organizations may use COMMBUYS, too. COMMBUYS is free to use and OSD will guide you through the set-up process.

We’re holding a series of informational online webinars as well as an instructor-led course in Boston to explain COMMBUYS benefits and next steps to become a COMMBUYS buyer organization. Choose a convenient time and select the Register link to reserve a spot. We hope you can join us!
