The Contract Liaison will be the lead coordinator between the Contract Unit Staff and Departments in resolving contract related issues. Departments are urged to first call the MMARS Helpline (617-973-2468) with any questions that are related to transaction processing in MMARS. Departments should contact the Contract Unit Liaison only if there is a need to know the status of a contract that has been submitted to CTR but has not been reviewed and processed, or if the department has received an e-mail from the Contract Unit requesting additional information or further clarification pertaining to a contract.
