Welcome to the Office of State Procurement!
The Office of State Procurement (OSP) was established on October 1, 2019 and is the primary procurement unit for all delegated procurements from the Board of Works except for transportation and transportation-related procurements and otherwise exempt procurements. On October 1, 2020, OSP celebrated its first year anniversary and as the final action required under HB1021, Chapter 590, Laws of 2017, the Chief Procurement Officer’s Report was submitted to the Governor and the Legislature.
The OSP consists of the Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) Robert Gleason, the Deputy CPO Mike Haifley, the Chief Administrative Officer Jamie Tomaszewski, Director Danny Mays (Procurement Bureau), Director Sachin Bhatt (eCommerce Management Bureau), and the Policy, Procurement Review and Training Bureau.
Policies and procedures established by the previous control agencies will not change immediately; however, all procurement functions now go through the OSP rather than the individual departments.
For the lists of current Statewide Contracts, refer to the following for details:
For Transportation or Transportation-related contracts, go to the Maryland Department of Transportation’s Procurement webpage.
The CPO serves as the Chairman of the Procurement Improvement Council (PIC).
