As of July 1st, 2016, Email is now the default means of communication for City agencies' Invitations for Bids (IFBs), Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and their notices of availability. Notifications by paper mail, fax, hand delivery, or otherwise, are only available upon request to the contracting agency. Agencies will use the Ordering Email addresses that have been provided by vendors in the Payee Information Portal (PIP) for all upcoming solicitations or notifications.
Your “Ordering Email Address” will be used by the City for notification and solicitation purposes. To ensure that the City has your up-to-date email address, it is advised that you log into PIP and review this information.
Establishing a PIP account can provide your business with additional benefits such as allowing you to view your financial transactions with the City and enrolling in the citywide bidders lists based on commodity code.
If you have any difficulty creating or updating your account in PIP, please reach out to the PIP Helpdesk at PIP@fisa-opa.nyc.gov.
