The General Counsel's Office provides technology law services to MassIT and, upon request, to other Executive Department agencies and parts of state government, as well as to counsel MassIT in general legal matters. MassIT's Legal Counsel offers the following services for MassIT projects:
  • Review solicitations: MassIT Legal reviews RFRs and Requests for Quotes (RFQs) and works with MassIT staff to ensure that procurement laws are followed.
  • Contract review, negation and drafting: All contracts under $25,000 are presented to MassIT Legal but withdrawn by MassIT's Finance Office within 48 business hours if MassIT Legal does not act on them. All contracts over $25,000 are reviewed, and sometimes drafted and negotiated, by MassIT Legal. The amount of time involved in this work is proportionate to the amount and complexity of the project.
  • Related legal Counsel: MassIT Legal answers questions about procurement law and other legal issues that arise in connection with operational projects.
