USA

Mr. Lomboy is a career government employee and procurement professional dedicated to ensuring that procurement in the State of Maryland is as efficient, transparent and accessible to our citizenry and business partners as possible while maintaining a focus on integrity, honesty and excellent customer service.
As Chief Administrative Officer for the Office of State Procurement, the primary focus is on aspects of operating in the public procurement arena that are necessary for others to have the ability to concentrate on conducting the actual procurement: legislation and regulation; budgets; key performance indicators and metrics; reporting; Maryland’s Procurement Improvement Council; Maryland’s Green Purchasing Council; and long term resource development and succession planning. As one of the six senior procurement leaders for the State of Maryland in charge of the procurement modernization effort, Mr. Lomboy is fortunate enough to have been involved in the planning, plotting and execution of the most significant procurement reform in the State of Maryland in the past quarter of a century.
Mr. Lomboy previously served as Director, Office of Procurement and Contract Management at the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA). During his time at MDOT SHA Mr. Lomboy oversaw the expansion and reorganization of the office to better meet the needs of the department. Mr. Lomboy also participated in Governor Larry Hogan’s Commission to Modernize Procurement’s Efficiencies Workgroup as part of the Technology subgroup, evaluating the various types of e-procurement solutions available on the market at that time.
Prior to working for the State of Maryland, Mr. Lomboy worked for the City of Baltimore’s Health Department where he was the Director of the office that oversaw lead paint abatement throughout the city. In this role, Mr. Lomboy was able to dramatically increase the number of lead-safe affordable housing properties, secure $6.5 million in additional funding to expand the City’s program, and develop public-private partnerships that resulted in an additional $6 million for the production of lead-safe affordable housing units in the City of Baltimore.
Mr. Lomboy earned a B.A. in Government and Public Policy and a Juris Doctor from the University of Baltimore.
