*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.
SBS primarily utilizes New York City’s centralized Bidder’s List to notify potential vendors of open procurements unless otherwise prescribed. To be included in the City’s Bidders’ list you must create a Payee Information Portal (PIP) account by visiting the PIP webpage. The commodity code listing is designated by Goods, Services and Construction. You should select the category your company can provide. Prospective vendors are encouraged to create a PIP account. Vendors who have questions or issues regarding online enrollment should contact the Vendor Enrollment Center at (212) 857-1680 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
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.

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.
