Welcome to the
Mayor's Office of Contract Services

Procurement is New York City’s tool to deliver the services our citizens expect and demand. Whether it’s biodiesel fuel for City vehicles, trucks to clear our streets, or fresh produce from local farmers, agencies are constantly procuring to serve the public. In Fiscal 2014, New York City procured more than $17.7 billion worth of supplies, services and construction, through more than 43,000 transactions. Procurement is used as a tool to serve the public and to accomplish critical governmental functions. Agencies procure contracts that reflect the breadth and variety of City services themselves.

The Mayor’s Office of Contract Services is the City’s compliance and oversight agency for procurement. Our mission? To help City agencies achieve their programmatic goals; to provide technical and legal assistance to agencies and vendors, and above all to constantly improve contract management practices.
