DCAS Agency Procurement oversees the procurement processes of the various offices and lines of service within DCAS to maximize efficiency and ensure compliance with the City's Procurement Policy Board Rules, the City Charter , applicable laws and executive orders, and mayoral directives. The unit primarily manages the procurement of construction and service contracts and oversees the procurement of goods contracts valued up to and including $100,000.
Procurement activity monitored includes scope development, vendor outreach, bids, bid-openings, responsiveness and responsibility determinations, vendor protests, contract registrations, contractor performance, and contract administration.
Agency Procurement oversees the implementation of new procurement laws and mandates, including Local Law 1 of 2013, which encourages the participation of certified minority-owned and woman-owned firms in City procurements. The unit is headed by the Agency Chief Contracting Officer (ACCO).
To be notified of procurement opportunities with the City, please register with the City Record Online (CROL) and with the Procurement and Sourcing Solutions Portal (PASSPort). Vendors no longer can enroll in commodities for NYC solicitations through the Payee Information Portal (PIP). New vendors may now enroll in commodities using the PASSPort system. Both systems will automatically notify vendors when a new procurement opportunity becomes available by City agencies. If you are thinking of becoming a new vendor for the City, we encourage you to begin your PASSPort submission as soon as possible, as it may take some time to complete and be approved.
