Doing Business with OMB

Doing Business With OMB

The Mayor’s Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”) periodically solicits various goods and services to assist the agency in carrying out its mission, including:

  • Various goods and services to maintain office operations including office supplies and IT software/hardware/peripherals.
  • Various engineers and designers to participate in intensive short-term Value Engineering studies.

Procurement Opportunities

OMB occasionally issues Requests for Proposals (“RFPs”) for specialized technical consultant contracts. Parties interested in working with OMB should review the LL63 projections listed on and pay close attention to listings in the City Record.

Minority/Women Business Enterprises (M/WBEs)

OMB is committed to supporting opportunities for M/WBE vendors. To become a certified M/WBE vendor doing business with the City, please consult the Subcontractors Resource Guide published by the Department of Small Business Services (“SBS”) and refer to New York City Small Business Services. SBS can also help M/WBE vendors select the right commodity codes for listings in the M/WBE Vendor Registry.

Opportunities to utilize the M/WBE Non-Competitive Small Purchase Method (up to $500,000) will be posted on the OMB website.

Doing Business with the City of New York

To do business with the City of New York, organizations need to create a vendor account in the City’s Payee Information Portal (PIP) (to get paid) and also in Procurement and Sourcing Solutions Portal (PASSPort) (for all other contracting actions, including completing vendor disclosures, finding and responding to contracting opportunities, signing the contract upon contract award, and much more). The Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS) developed and maintains PASSPort.
