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.
The FDNY is pleased to announce the roll out of the new Vendor Connect system. Vendor Connect is an on-line invoice portal that will allow vendors to submit their invoices and any required supporting documentation directly to the FDNY Accounts Payable system.
The system can be accessed at: https://fdny.vendorconnect.nyc/
Vendor Connect will populate our database with the billing information and allow you to track invoicing status. You may start entering your invoices into Vendor Connect after on-line registration and acceptance of the system terms and conditions. Going forward, please do not email or mail any invoices to FDNY. Also, do not enter invoices into the Vendor Connect system which have been previously submitted to FDNY.
The instructions on how to use the system is available on the Vendor Connect website under the Help tab. If you need further information or assistance, please call 718-999-0416.
Starting on July 1st, 2016, email will be the default means of communication for City agencies' Invitations for Bids (IFBs), Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and their notices of availability. Notifications by paper mail, fax, hand delivery, or otherwise, will only be available upon request to the contracting agency. Agencies will use the Ordering email addresses that have been provided by vendors in the Payee Information Portal (PIP) for all future 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 before 7/1/2016.
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 your agency contact Contracts@fdny.nyc.gov . If you need further assistance, please contact the Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS) at MOCSOutreach@cityhall.nyc.gov.
