The Department of General Services’ Office of State Procurement has the authority to procure commodities and services on behalf of other state agencies and departments when the amount of the contract is expected to exceed the using agency’s purchasing authority. Most all state agencies conduct procurement through eMaryland Marketplace Advantage to solicit contract opportunities that exceed $15,000.

The eMaryland Marketplace Advantage (eMMA) is the online procurement system used to connect the vendor community with contracting opportunities from state, county, and local government entities. Registered vendors can search and receive notices of bid opportunities, submit bid responses online, obtain bid results online, and self-certify for the Small Business Reserve and the Veteran-Owned Small Business Enterprise programs. More than 200 state and local government organizations use the system.
