|An important function of the Chief Procurement Officer for General Services (CPO-GS) is to make contracts and supplies and services available to local units of government and officers of the State. The Illinois Department of Central Management Services (CMS), the Illinois Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT), and the CPO-GS procure contracts for supplies and services that the CPO-GS makes available to governmental units.|
Effective October 16, 2017, Statewide Master Contracts established by (or held by) CMS, DoIT, and the CPO-GS reside and are maintained in BidBuy. These CMS, DoIT, and CPO-GS contracts are no longer found in the Master Contracts section of the Illinois Procurement Bulletin (www.purchase.state.il.us).
We understand that many governmental units, such as your own, want to utilize these contracts. To help locate and retrieve Statewide Master Contracts, the State has created two training guides.
