Fiscal Year 2013 Small Business Purchasing Program Benchmark IssuedThe Operational Services Division is pleased to announce the issuance of the Fiscal Year 2013 benchmark for the Small Business Purchasing Program (SBPP). In an effort to increase the use of small businesses in public purchasing, Executive Branch Departments are strongly encouraged to spend 2.5% of annual procurement expenditures with verified small businesses participating in the SBPP. By issuing this benchmark, Executive Branch Departments have a greater incentive to support the existence and growth of small businesses in the Commonwealth by continuing to invest in Massachusetts-based small business enrolled in the SBPP.
