Procurement 101

The City of New York procures more than $20 billion dollars of goods and services every year from outside contractors, ranging from nonprofits providing services in our communities to contractors building and maintaining our infrastructure to companies supplying administrative goods and services that enable City Agencies to function effectively – and many more.  These contractors include a diverse pool of entities in a wide range of industries.

The Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS) works to ensure the procurement process runs smoothly and is transparent, fair, responsible and timely. The technology innovations MOCS is implementing are designed to make it easier to do business with the City and to encourage greater participation.
