State Contracts

Buying goods and services through Statewide Contracts can offer significant benefits, including time savings, obtaining best value at competitive prices, and establishment of long-term relationships. The Operational Services Division (OSD) can help you get the most out of Statewide Contracts, determine if you are eligible to use them, and assist you in buying from minority and women-owned businesses, as well as purchasing environmentally friendly products. OSD has implemented COMMBUYS which is an online database of contracts and their supporting documentation.    

Reminder prior to using a State Contract be sure to check the available Punch-out Suppliers and University Contracts first.
