In Fiscal Year 2016, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts spent more than $21 million with Massachusetts-based small businesses providing IT professional services. For some companies, though, navigating the process of doing business with the State is confusing, burdensome, and time-consuming.
The procurement department of Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Operational Services Division (OSD), in partnership with the Massachusetts Office of Information Technology (MassIT), launched in July 2016 a pioneering IT Small Business Incubator Pilot, which aims to reduce barriers to doing business with the Commonwealth, expedite contracting, and increase access to innovative services.
VeraCloud has been evaluated by the Commonwealth’s procurement department, the Operational Services Division (OSD), awarded a contract for IT Services, and is now enrolled into the first cohort of Pilot participants.
This recently launched IT Small Business Incubator Pilot is another great example of how the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is committed to the importance of Massachusetts small businesses and the impact and challenges they face in today’s economy.
