- Publications and policies to guide departments in procuring human and social services, as well as to assist providers in complying with state and federal requirements.
- Policy Updates are related to Commonwealth procurement policy and are not the same as OSD Updates, which relate to specific statewide contracts.
Below is a list of applicable statutes, regulations and executive orders that form the basis for OSD’s oversight of each of these functional areas as well as the related policies:
- Procurement policies and procedures and associated policy guidance provide step-by-step instructions for conducting procurements, writing Requests for Responses and managing contracts. Procurement exceptions are also included.
- OSD achieves best value by using Strategic Sourcing Services Teams (SSST) to ensure that customer needs are met by involving those customers directly in the entire procurement process.
