Happy New Year!

Begin the New Year on a high note - look for greater savings utilizing Statewide Contracts.

Below you will find links to the updated Statewide Contract Reference Guide and other news. Please take a moment to look at the latest guide to familiarize yourself with all of OSD's offerings. Consider using a Statewide Contract instead of going out to bid as we have more than 100 Statewide Contracts. If we don't have something you need, let us know.

Please contact me if you have questions or if we may provide assistance.

Best regards,

Eric Murphy
