The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) periodically solicits various goods and services to assist the agency in carrying out its mission.
As of July 1st, 2016, email is the default means of communication for LPC’s Invitations for Bids (IFBs), Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and other notices of availability. Notifications by paper mail, fax, hand delivery, or otherwise, are only available upon request to LPC’s Agency Chief Contracting Officer (ACCO) at the contact information below. The agency uses the Ordering E-mail 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 LPC’s ACCO. If you need further assistance, please contact the Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS).
Although LPC spends a very small dollar amount on procurement of goods and services, we strongly support the Citywide initiative to provide opportunities for M/WBE firms. The Agency exceeded spending goals for Black American-owned firms in professional services, Hispanic American-owned firms in standard services, and Asian American-owned firms in construction in 2015. These successes have resulted in an overall B grade for two years in a row in the Comptroller’s Annual Making the Grade M/WBE Report. To become a certified M/WBE vendor doing business with the City and LPC, please refer to New York City Small Business Services. The Department of Small Business Services can also help you select the right commodity codes for your business.

Please feel free to contact the ACCO with specific questions about LPC purchasing.
The Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS) is launching a new online procurement tool, the Procurement and Sourcing Solutions Portal (PASSPort), moving VENDEX online. PASSPort makes it easier for vendors to submit and keep disclosure documents up-to-date. PASSPort will allow Agencies to make determinations for contract awards and complete performance evaluations online. Visit nyc.gov/passport for updates on PASSPort. For additional information, email the PASSPort support team at email@example.com.
