E-mail Solicitation of Procurements

As of July 1, 2016, e-mail is now 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, are only available upon request to the Law Department.

Your “Ordering E-mail Address” will be used by the City for notification and solicitation purposes. To ensure that the City has your up-to-date e-mail address, please log into PIP and review this information.

  • For a step-by-step guide on how to update your Ordering E-mail address in PIP and to confirm that it is the default address, please access the Default Ordering Address in PIP Guide.
  • If your organization does not have a PIP Account, please refer to the PIP Activation Guide for help on how to create one.
  • For any additional information on PIP Account maintenance, please consult the PIP Account Tutorial.

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. If you need further assistance, please contact the Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS) at or at
