SERSG administers bids on behalf of its members in strict compliance with all applicable regulations, Massachusetts General Laws and executive orders.  These bids ensure a fair, competitive and transparent process, and result in cost-effective supply and service contracts for participating municipalities. 

We partnered with the Massachusetts Purchasing Group in 2021 to publish solicitations with other agencies across Massachusetts. This platform notifies vendors at no cost when bid requirements match their services.  We hope vendors find this system useful to access bid opportunities. Visit us on the Massachusetts Purchasing Group.

SERSG routinely administers six or more bids annually for its members as follows: DPW Services, DPW Supplies, Paper, and Water & Sewer Treatment Chemicals every year, Office Supplies every two years, and Drug and Alcohol Testing Services every three years, with additional bids as needed.
