CLEVELAND, March 14, 2019 /CNW/ -- Nitor, a leading transformation services firm, has been awarded the contract by the State of Maryland for a new statewide e-procurement system, eMaryland Marketplace Advantage (eMMA).
"With the addition of this e-procurement system, Maryland is taking a significant step forward in the way we do business," said Governor Hogan.
