Information and Forms

To do business with the City of New York, organizations need to create a vendor account in the City's Payee Information Portal (PIP) (to get paid) and also in Procurement and Sourcing Solutions Portal (PASSPort) (for all other contracting actions, including completing vendor disclosures, finding and responding to contracting opportunities, signing the contract upon contract award, and much more). The Mayor's Office of Contract Services (MOCS) developed and maintains PASSPort.

Note: A PASSPort account is required to respond to solicitations (RFx). Organizations looking to respond to Health and Human Services (HHS) solicitations need to have an approved HHS Prequalification Application in PASSPort.
