The New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) invests in a network of community based organizations and programs to alleviate the effects of poverty and provide opportunities for New Yorkers and communities to flourish
DYCD contracts with various community-based organizations that provide services and activities for youth and low-income populations.
Starting on July 1st, 2016, email will be 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, will only be available upon request to the Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD). Agencies will use the Ordering Email addresses that have been provided by vendors in the Payee Information Portal (PIP) for all future 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 DYCD’s ACCO Help Desk at ACCO@dycd.nyc.gov. If you need further assistance, please contact the Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS) at MOCSOutreach@cityhall.nyc.gov.
To respond to Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for human services, vendors must first complete and submit an electronic prequalification application using the NYC Health and Human Services (HHS) Accelerator System. The HHS Accelerator system is a web-based system maintained by the City of New York that is used by its human services Agencies to manage procurement.
Important information about the HHS Accelerator procurement method:
RFPs procured via the HHS Accelerator procurement method are listed on the NYC Procurement Roadmap. All current and prospective vendors should frequently review information listed on roadmap to take full advantage of upcoming contracting opportunities.
For more information about HHS Accelerator, including background materials, user guides and video tutorials, please visit www.nyc.gov/hhsaccelerator.
