DDC uses open Requests for Proposals (RFP) for most of our design and construction management contracts. RFPs are open to all interested firms. Notices of these RFPs are published in The City Record and online. Specific notifications also are made available to firms on the City's centralized vendor lists. We encourage all interested firms to become a centralized vendor by completing the NYC-FMS Vendor Enrollment Application.
DDC's construction contracts are handled through an open competitive bid process. We provide information about upcoming bid opportunities for construction contracts, preliminary bid results, awarded construction contracts, and future construction projects.

The City of New York is rolling out new features in its PASSPort online procurement platform that will make the contracting process easier and more transparent than ever. PASSPort facilitates every step of the procurement process - from identifying vendors to contract solicitation and response evaluation, award to contract, and invoicing to payment. To maximize business opportunities, all contractors should create a vendor account in PASSPort. Please reference the Vendor Account Creation manual for step by step instructions on how to create a vendor account in PASSPort. For more information on PASSPort, visit the Mayor's Office of Contract Services (MOCS) PASSPort Webpage or reach out to the MOCS Service Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
City-certified Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises (M/WBEs) can receive and respond to opportunities of up to $500,000 for goods, professional services, standard services and construction without formal competition by creating an account in PASSPort. Instructions here.
The majority of DDC's Public Building's design work is issued under contracts known collectively as the 6/20, or previously as the 8/20. These contracts are used for all DDC projects up to $50 million in construction value, with the exception of certain engineering and specialty work. Currently, the 6/20 consists of two groups of requirement contracts - a group of 6 firms hired to work on design projects where the construction value is between $15 million and $50 million, and a group of 20 small firms who are hired to work on design projects up to $15 million in construction value.
Subconsultants do not need to be prequalified. When DDC selects a consultant, the strength of the entire team (including subconsultants) included in the applicant's proposal is evaluated. Because of this, firms seeking to work as subconsultants on specific projects and on requirement contracts must generally join up with the prime firms preparing their responses to DDC Requests for Proposals (RFPs).
The Department of Design and Construction now utilizes open Requests For Proposals (RFP) for most of its design and construction management contracts. DDC's RFPs are open to all interested firms. Notices of these RFPs are published in The City Record and on this website. In addition, specific notification will be made to firms on the City's centralized vendor lists. We encourage all interested firms to enroll by completing the NYC-FMS Vendor Enrollment Application . Call 311 for further information.
