Addendum #2
Attachment F (2005 Disparity Study)

*Bidders/Proposers should routinely check this website for addendum to open procurements. It is the full responsibility of the bidder/proposer for checking this site for any subsequent date changes or addenda. SBS takes no responsibility for informing potential bidders/proposers who download documents of changes to original documents.

Vendor/Bidder’s List

SBS primarily utilizes New York City’s centralized Bidder’s List to notify potential vendors of open procurements unless otherwise prescribed. To be included on the NYC Bidder’s List, complete the NYC-FMS Vendor Enrollment Application via the Payee Information Portal. Once your Vendor Enrollment Application has been accepted, your organization will be added to the City’s centralized bidders/proposers lists for the products and services you are interested in supplying to the City. Placement on this list does not guarantee receipt of a solicitation from SBS. In addition to this webpage, notices for procurements may be available in the City Record. It is the vendor's responsibility to check for posted notices.

All questions regarding the Vendor Enrollment Application should be directed to the Vendor Enrollment Center at (212) 857-1680 or via email at

If your organization would like to submit additional documentation regarding the goods and services you provide, please send a letter to:

NYC Dept. of Small Business Services
Attn: Procurement Unit
110 William St – 7th Floor
New York, NY 10038

Payee Information Portal

The Payee Information Portal allows you to manage your contact information, track payments and enroll in commodity code listings. The commodity codes identify the types of goods and services that your organization can provide. Businesses seeking to work with SBS should enroll under the commodity codes that best describe their respective products and services.

Recent enhancements to the system allows for Contractors to report their subcontractors via the Payee Information Portal. Please see the Notice to Bidders for additional information.

Fiscal Manual

The NYC Department of Small Business Services’ (SBS’) Fiscal Manual is a set of instructions provided to existing or prospective contractors, documenting the applicable policies and procedures to be used in such matters as record-keeping, bookkeeping, fiscal reporting, cost allocating and payroll.   Adherence to this manual is the best way to ensure that contractors are reimbursed expeditiously and that there is no disallowance of expenses.  The Agency strongly recommends that applicable contractors become very familiar with the content of this document.
