Conducting Business with the City

The Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) administers several programs that allow the public to conduct business with the City of New York.

Opportunities exist for vendors to supply goods and services to DCAS and other City agencies through our Office of Citywide Procurement. Various Request for Proposals and Request for Bid solicitations can be found by checking the City Record regularly.

For individuals looking to lease and/or buy space in City-owned properties, we have various auction programs through our Real Estate Services division. Properties suitable for concession operations will be added to the site in the near future. Additional auction and sales opportunities for the purchase of surplus goods, including used vehicles from the City's fleet, are available through our auction partners.

The citywide initiative to reimburse qualifying nonpublic schools for the cost of procuring certain security services became the responsibility of DCAS in 2016. The program allows for the selection of qualified guard services and the payment for those services to school outside of the New York City public school system.
