Eric Murphy Headshot

The Operational Services Division (OSD) is serious about its commitment to making COMMBUYS available to all eligible buyers. As part of our ongoing assurance to helping local buyers take advantage of everything COMMBUYS has to offer, we have engaged a new team of dedicated outreach professionals to assist local government and other eligible entities with their purchasing and procurement needs. Headed by Eric Murphy, the COMMBUYS Enablement Team travels throughout the Commonwealth demonstrating how the COMMBUYS Market Center can save municipalities and other eligible entities time and money.

What, specifically, can COMMBUYS deliver for local government? The COMMBUYS Market Center offers easy online access and purchasing from over 120 Statewide Contracts with more than 377,000 items available in online catalogs. Using the Market Center’s extensive bid management features, registered buyers are able to create and publish bids, receive electronic responses, manage bid evaluation online, and maintain a complete end-to-end audit trail of their procurement process. COMMBUYS is FREE to use and is available around the clock, three hundred sixty-five days a year.

The COMMBUYS Enablement Team is available to meet with interested organizations to learn about their purchasing and procurement processes and design a customized solution. The Enablement team helps organizations get up and ready in COMMBUYS assisting with set-up and free staff training.

Learn more about the COMMBUYS advantage and then reach out to the COMMBUYS Enablement Team at commbuysenablement@state.ma.us to schedule your meeting today.
