During the COVID-19 public health emergency, many procurement officers have needed to delegate their authority to staff with little, if any, public procurement knowledge. Or procurement officers find themselves facing procurement-related questions that have never been raised before.
To assist our colleagues in public procurement, we are now offering virtual meetings for you and other staff in your jurisdiction. If you would like a virtual appointment via ZOOM or another meeting platform, please contact us at 30BHotline@state.ma.us. We can schedule meetings of up to one hour with you and your staff to discuss Chapter 30B issues or other challenges that you are facing during this emergency. We can also provide a brief primer for employees or officials new to public procurement. We are here to help you navigate public procurement, and this is a new way to assist you.
For staff new to public procurement, we encourage you to have them tune into our 22-minute Chapter 30B YouTube video so that they can learn the basics of local procurement law.
