Background

The City of New York invests billions annually in Client and Community based Services through competitive contracts. These contracts are awarded to providers to deliver a wide range of services such as mental health counseling, workforce training, foster care, after school programs, senior centers, and shelter and housing programs.

HHS Accelerator was launched to simplify and speed the contract process for Client and Community based Services providers. Through a deliberate and collaborative multi year planning process with providers, redundant paper based requirements were removed, processes reengineered, and contract documents standardized allowing the City and providers to focus more on mission critical activities.
