Statewide Contract Benefits and 30B Compliance

The Commonwealth has more than 100 Statewide Contracts offering favorable prices and additional perks like prompt pay discounts, bulk purchase pricing, and extended warranties. Using the Operational Services Division’s (OSD) Statewide Contracts may save you time and money while giving your community the best value.

The Office of the Inspector General clarifies that purchases made from Statewide Contracts through the OSD are exempt from the requirements of M.G.L. c. 30B (1)(c), provided that purchasers follow the guidelines stated in the Contract User Guides developed for each Statewide Contract. For 30B-related questions, contact the Office of the Inspector General.

The Statewide Contract Index has answers to common questions about Statewide Contracts.
