Customized Training Sessions – Virtual and On-Site

OSD’s training catalogs for buyers and vendors include information about state procurement, Statewide Contracts, and COMMBUYS. In addition to our standard course curriculum, the OSD Training Unit also offers customized training sessions for our buyer and vendor communities.

OSD’s requirements for customized training are simple: provide at least 12 staff members and meeting space (unless the meeting will be virtual). The OSD Training Unit will do the rest – even merging course topics to meet the specific needs of your organization. Express interest by completing the OSD On-Site Training Request Form. Send questions to OSDTraining@mass.gov.

Training will be cancelled if any of the following occur:

  1. Non-essential government workers have been advised to stay home or if the State Office Buildings are closed due to inclement weather.
  2. If the public schools are closed in the city where the session is being conducted due to inclement weather.

If you are registered for training on a stormy day, please check your local weather forecasts and the mass.gov website for Weather Alerts.
