COMMBUYS, the Commonwealth’s eProcurement system, is home to more than just contracts and bidding opportunities. Funding often is available to municipalities in the form of grants, which also live in the COMMBUYS Market Center as bid opportunities. While many municipalities have registered in COMMBUYS with buyer profiles, finding and responding to grant opportunities requires municipalities to also register as vendors.

Vendor registration is free and should only take a few minutes. To register, simply go to www.COMMBUYS.com and click the “Register” link to begin. Be prepared to provide the name, address, email, and Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) for the organization, business, or entity registering.

A variety of resources are available to assist in the registration process:

Once registered, it’s simple and straightforward to find funding opportunities. Using your vendor User Name and Password, log in to COMMBUYS , select the seller tab, and then select the advanced search logo (eyeglass next to time and date). Use the advanced search feature to select “Bids” in the “Document Type” dropdown. Use the provided fields to search for Grants.

Another useful tool to reference as you complete the grant bidding process is the “Locate a Grant Posting and Create a Response” Job Aid.

COMMBUYS Help Desk assistance is available by telephone at (888) 627-8283 or via email at COMMBUYS@state.ma.us. Help Desk hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
