HHS Accelerator

To respond to Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for human/client services, vendors must first complete and submit an electronic prequalification application using the NYC Health and Human Services (HHS) Accelerator System.  The HHS Accelerator system is a web-based system maintained by the City of New York that is used by its human services Agencies to manage procurement.

Important information about the HHS Accelerator procurement method:

  • Prequalification applications are required every three years
  • Documents related to annual corporate filings must be submitted on an annual basis to remain eligible to compete in RFPs
  • Prequalification applications will be reviewed to validate
  • Approved organizations will be eligible to compete in RFPs and can submit electronic proposals through the system.

RFPs procured via the HHS Accelerator procurement method are listed on the NYC Procurement Roadmap. All current and prospective vendors should frequently review information listed on roadmap to take full advantage of upcoming contracting opportunities.
