Massachusetts will issue $621.4 million of general obligation, new-money debt this week in two separate transactions, offering $300 million through negotiation today and tomorrow before selling $321.4 million in a competitive deal set for Wednesday.

The strategy follows prior Maryland and Delaware GO sales that incorporated both negotiated and competitive deals that sold on consecutive days. Maryland sold $199 million via competitive bid on March 4 followed by a $291.5 million negotiated deal on March 5. Delaware issued $115 million through negotiation on Jan. 13 before a $121 million competitive offering the next day.
