To do business with the City, vendors must register and create an account in the City’s Payee Information Portal (PIP). In PIP, vendors can view financial transactions with the City of New York, register for Electronic Funds Transfer payments and much more. Once enrolled, vendors must report their subcontractors and subcontractor payments within PIP. Vendors who have questions or issues regarding online enrollment should contact the Vendor Enrollment Center at (212) 857-1680 or via email at email@example.com.
W-9 forms or W-8 forms (foreign vendors) are required to complete PIP registration. Vendors cannot get paid without completing these forms.
Starting on July 1, 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. If you need further assistance, please contact the Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS) at MOCSOutreach@cityhall.nyc.gov.
