Requirements Contracts in PASSPort


A requirements contract is entered into by a City agency, usually the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) or the Department of Information Technology & Telecommunications (DoITT), with a vendor that generally agrees to supply the City’s entire need for a particular good or service. Using the contract on an “as-needed” basis allows the City to purchase quickly, efficiently, and at a lower cost through volume-based discount pricing.

PASSPort enables the goods and services from requirements contracts to be available to Agencies through a modern, online catalog shopping experience. This makes it easier for Agencies to find, purchase and more promptly approve payment for goods and services.
