OSD Training TeamAre you a vendor?
Perhaps you’re considering state certification as a tool to increase your business’ marketability. Maybe you’re new to the idea of doing business with state government and want to learn more. Have you set up a COMMBUYS business profile to access state bids and realize that some COMMBUYS 101 training would be helpful? Could you use assistance navigating the state bidding process? Perhaps you’re a new Statewide Contract vendor who needs training to locate and respond to buyer quote requests.

Are you a buyer?
Do you need a better idea of what’s covered on State contract? Is part of your day-to-day developing RFRs and could you use some best practices? Wouldn’t you appreciate some helpful hints to get COMMBUYS capabilities working for you? Do you need an overview of state procurement policy and procedures?

The Training Team’s expertise cuts across all OSD programs and services, making them a valuable partner. They’ve helped thousands of public buyers and business customers reach their goals, so if you’re not among this ever-growing cohort, perhaps you should be.
