Procurement Measures During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The Office of the Inspector General wrote a letter to agency heads, chief financial officers and procurement officials with guidance to safeguard public funds during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

For staff new to public procurement, our short 22-minute Chapter 30B YouTube video provides  you with the basics of local procurement law. 

 

Use our Chapter 30B Hotline email or hotline telephone number at (617) 722-8838 to receive technical assistance related to compliance with Chapter 30B.
