Statewide Contracts are required for use by every Executive Branch department in Massachusetts and are available for use by all eligible public entities within the Commonwealth, such as agencies, departments, constitutional offices, public authorities, commissions, cities, and towns. The State buys virtually every product or service that a public entity might need to conduct business.
Products include office supplies, desktop and laptop computers, vehicles, tires, fuel, maintenance and repair items, lawn and grounds equipment, security systems, food products, medical supplies and equipment, and thousands of other products.
Services include those provided by financial professionals such as actuaries, accountants, and statisticians; temporary office and IT staff, foreign language interpreters, legal professionals such as tax attorneys, title examiners; and many others.
There is no “bid list.” To become a seller on a Statewide Contract, vendors must execute a contract with OSD or its designee after responding to a fair, open, and competitive solicitation for bids to provide goods and/or services. This section explains the steps required in order to become a Statewide Contractor.
