The Office of Citywide Procurement (OCP), formerly known as the Division of Municipal Supply Services, is the chief procurement agent for the City of New York and is responsible for purchasing certain services and goods whose total value exceeds the small purchase limit of $100,000. In Fiscal Year 2011 OCP purchased goods worth approximately $1 billion for over 100 City agencies. OCP is also charged with quality control for all purchases; warehousing and distribution of goods to agencies throughout the City; and the transfer, sale and other safe disposal of City agencies' surplus goods.
