Bid Announcements

HCC encourages qualified vendors to participate in the bid process. There are two avenues for participation:

The Massachusetts Higher Education Consortium (MHEC) 

COMMBUYS-The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Official Procurement Record System

While HCC attempts to notify those interested in participating in bid opportunities, it makes no guarantee that vendors will be included in solicitations. Those individuals or businesses who wish to participate in bids are advised to make use of MHEC or COMMBUYS.  Vendors who register with COMMBUYS will receive automatic email notifications of any solicitation that HCC posts on COMMBUYS.  Open bids are also posted at the college on a bulletin board across the hall from Frost 335.

While it is HCC's intention to make public the results of its solicitation process as quickly as possible, HCC shall not be held liable for errors, clerical or otherwise, or interpretation/misinterpretation of the information publicly read at the formal opening.
