Benefits of NYC Certification

A City representative is assisting a business owner at the annual Citywide Procurement Fair

Local Law 1 of 2013 encourages New York City agencies to buy more goods and services from certified businesses. We also help certified businesses through the following opportunities:

Free advertising in the NYC Online Directory of Certified Businesses, which connects City agencies and other buyers with certified businesses. Vendors can market their goods and/or services to potential buyers through the directory.
Mentorship programs and workshops to help M/WBEs build and strengthen operations to compete and perform better on contract opportunities.
Our NYC Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) provides consultation services while you are in the process of drafting a bid proposal and provides post-selection feedback.
Access to networking events for certified businesses, including the annual Citywide Procurement Fair, an SBS signature event for M/WBEs only.
