Stopwatch and Packages 2

 

Although it is unlikely that New England would be hit with a hurricane, particularly this early in the season, emergencies may occur at any time and advanced planning is prudent. Part of the Operational Services Division’s responsibility in addressing the Commonwealth’s goods and services requirements is ensuring buyers have access to needed resources during times of emergency. To this end, several hundred Statewide Contract Vendors are designated as emergency suppliers based on their ability to expedite orders and make special accommodations, such as filling product and service needs 24/7 or enabling buyers to pick up needed items outside of regular business hours. Agencies, municipalities, schools, and other eligible buyers may quickly identify and connect with our emergency suppliers using the Emergency Response Supplies, Services, and Equipment Contact Information on the OSD website. This resource lists the vendor’s name, associated Statewide Contract, and a contact person, along with phone number and email. At any point in time, it makes sense to have this resource on hand should an emergency arise. Note that buyers may identify our full complement of vendors using our Contract User Guides, the Statewide Contract Index, and/or COMMBUYS.
