HHS Accelerator (HHSA) was launched in 2013 to establish a centralized, digital system for human services solicitations, prequalification, document storage and financial management. With the 2017 introduction of PASSPort as the Citywide Procurement and Sourcing Solutions Portal, MOCS is transitioning HHS Accelerator activities to PASSPort. Today, health and human services solicitations are publicly posted on PASSPort, providers complete the HHS Prequalification Application in PASSPort and proposals are submitted in PASSPort. For more information and PASSPort support, visit the Learning to Use PASSPort page at nyc.gov/passport.
While many activities are transitioning to PASSPort, HHS Accelerator is still to be used to manage health and human services budgets and invoices, and HHSA continues to offer secure document storage through the Document Vault to its users. In addition, HHSA account holders may now view historical account data in read-only format.
The Document Vault: is a secure, Web-based filing cabinet that allows account holders to store and share documents. Documents, and folders containing multiple documents, can easily a securely be shared with City Agencies and/or other HHSA account holders. The Document Vault function may be used by current and new HHSA account holders regardless of whether an organization has a contract with City.
Financials: allows for electronic management of financial transactions for human services contracts. Providers and participating Agencies manage budgets and invoices and track payments in the system. The following New York City Agencies utilize HHS Accelerator to manage contract budgets, invoices, and payments:
Providers should check the PASSPort Public Portal to maintain awareness of all upcoming health and human services RFPs. Organizations must have a PASSPort account and an Approved HHS PQL Application in PASSPort to propose on human services solicitations in PASSPort.
