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.
All procurements and funding decisions are made in accordance with applicable State Finance Law and/or federal regulations. Bids are requested, as needed, to address OMIG’s programmatic and operational needs. To directly receive notice of appropriate OMIG bidding opportunities, you must apply for placement on the OMIG Bidders List.
To ensure that you receive all updates to OMIG’s bid opportunities, you will need to visit and sign up for an account at the New York State Contract Reporter (NYSCR). Additional procurement opportunities can be found through the New York State Office of General Services (OGS), and the New York State Register.
Downloading or printing a solicitation from its website does not constitute registration to bid on an OMIG procurement. Failure to register with the New York State Contract Reporter releases OMIG from any and all responsibility for advising you, an unregistered user, of any changes to a bid solicitation, or to the existence of supplemental information which may become available.
