Department of Education

The New York City Department of Education (DOE) offers procurement opportunities for nonprofits interested in providing services to DOE, public schools, and students. The primary methods for contracting with the DOE are through Requests for Bids (RFBs), Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and the Multiple Task Award Contracts (MTAC) pre-qualification process.

The DOE solicits competitive bids and proposals through RFBs and RFPs, which are published on the DOE's website.

The DOE also selects providers for MTAC opportunities. Schools can purchase services from organizations that are prequalified for an MTAC through a streamlined process. View open MTAC opportunities on the DOE website.
