Two questions that buyers ask time and again regarding Statewide Contracts are:Question Marks in Colorful Speech Bubbles

  1. How do I confirm if a certain vendor is on a Statewide Contract?
  2. How do I determine if a particular product or service is on Contract?

The Statewide Contract Index was designed to answer these and other contract-related questions. The Index enables buyers to:

  • Find Statewide Contract (SWC) products and services using keywords;
  • Identify vendors on contract;
  • Locate contract purchasing information: PunchOut catalog purchasing; Blanket Release types; Solicitation Enabled contracts; and RPA Enabled contracts;
  • Conduct SWC title searches; and
  • NEW! Identify Statewide Contract vendors certified by the Supplier Diversity Office (SDO) and/or participants in the Small Business Purchasing Program (SBPP).

Easily find the Index from the COMMBUYS home page under the Information about Statewide Contract Purchasing section. Once you’ve accessed the Excel spreadsheet, select the Enable Content button at the top of the page to get started. A link to User Instructions is posted on the Index.

Refer questions about the Index to the COMMBUYS Help Desk at 888-MA-State (627-8283).
