It is the policy (the “Procurement Conflicts Policy”) of the Mass Tech Collaborative that individuals and/or the primary personnel of entities currently party to an unexpired Master Service Agreement with the Mass Tech Collaborative may not, as a general rule, provide professional services to any grantee (the “Grantee”) of the Mass Tech Collaborative for so long as the Master Service Agreement is in effect. In addition, individuals and/or the primary personnel of entities currently providing professional services to a Grantee pursuant to a contract (the “Service Contract”) may not, as a general rule, provide professional services of any kind to the Mass Tech Collaborative for so long as such Service Contract is in effect. The foregoing policy is a preventive measure intended to avoid actual or apparent conflicts of interest under M.G.L. c. 268A. Questions concerning the Procurement Conflicts Policy and/or its actual or potential application to a particular consultant may be directed to the Mass Tech Collaborative’s legal department.
