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 email@example.com.
The HHS Accelerator System is a web-based system maintained by the City of New York for use by its human services agencies to manage procurement.
RFPs, which will be managed by HHS Accelerator, 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 opportunities for funding.
To sign up for training on the new system, and for additional information about HHS Accelerator, including background materials, user guides and video tutorials, please visit NYC HHS Accelerator.
