New York State agencies buy technology goods and services using centralized procurement contracts established by the NYS Office of General Services, and also establish agency-specific procurement contracts to meet specific technology needs. All technology procurements are subject to state procurement laws and must comply with NYS technology policies and standards. If your company is interested in selling IT goods or services in the NYS public sector marketplace or in contracting with NYS government entities, these links provide useful information to get you started:

Article 11 of the New York State Finance Law requires that competitive bids be awarded to responsive and responsible bidders. In order to fulfill this requirement, you must complete the Vendor Responsibility Questionnaire. This helps OMIG determine whether the bidder’s organization is a responsible bidder.
More information is available from the NYS Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) centralized site for vendors.
