The City of New York is rolling out new features in its PASSPort online procurement platform that will make the contracting process easier and more transparent than ever. PASSPort facilitates every step of the procurement process - from identifying vendors to contract solicitation and response evaluation, award to contract, and invoicing to payment. To maximize business opportunities, all contractors should create a vendor account in PASSPort. Please reference the Vendor Account Creation manual for step by step instructions on how to create a vendor account in PASSPort. For more information on PASSPort, visit the Mayor's Office of Contract Services (MOCS) PASSPort Webpage or reach out to the MOCS Service Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
