New OSP Website is Live

On January 20, 2023, the Office of State Procurement (OSP) successfully launched a significant update to its website. In many cases, the bookmarks you previously set will no longer work. Please review the updated website. If you are unable to find resources that you previously accessed, you may contact the OSP HelpLine, at 651.296.2600.
Additionally, the Secure Area Sign-In process for state agency users and CPV members has changed. The first time you log in, you will need to select “Create new account.”

NEW OSP Website

The site now requires each user to have credentials. The first time you log in, you will be prompted for the access code originally assigned to your agency/entity. If you forgot your access code, please contact Sherry Brown at 651.201.2404. You will then be prompted to create a profile and a password. Thereafter you will use your email address and password to log in.  The Secure Area continues to provide access to the Contract Search page, along with information and links previously found within the Secure Area.
