Public Design and Construction Procurement

The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) works with public officials and others to establish best practices for public design and construction projects, in addition to providing guidance and training.

Since the Massachusetts legislature first established our office in 1981, we have been involved in the development of policies and procedures related to the state’s public design and construction laws.

We work with various agencies, including the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM), the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA), the Department of Energy Resources (DOER), the Attorney General’s Office, as well as other agencies and many local entities to establish best practices.
