  • COMMBUYS Phase II: Expansion of Market Center Functionality

    Working closely with the Office of the State Comptroller, the Operational Services Division (OSD) is actively planning Phase II of the COMMBUYS rollout that includes interfaces with MMARS, the Massachusetts Management Accounting and Reporting System.  This connection, planned for late spring 2015, will enable a secure and seamless process from ordering through payment in the COMMBUYS Market Center. 

    Additional planned enhancements include ad hoc and preformatted reporting capabilities that will provide important departmental purchasing detail and offer valuable spend data analytics to the Commonwealth.

    Stay tuned for additional information beginning January 2015.
