CROL is posted each business day and includes notices of proposed New York City procurement actions, contract awards, and other procurement-related information. Solicitation notices for most procurements valued at or above $100,000 for information technology and for construction and construction-related services, above $50,000 for other services, and above $25,000 for other goods are published for at least one day. Other types of procurements, such as sole source, require notice in The City Record for five consecutive days. Unless otherwise specified, the agencies and offices listed are open for business Mondays through Fridays, from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., except legal holidays.
HOW TO READ PROCUREMENT NOTICES
Procurement Notices in CROL are arranged by types of goods or services to be purchased. Notices appear from the date they are posted (normally the day before publication in the printed City Record) until the date the bid/proposal is due. The name of the agency seeking goods or services is listed as well as necessary contact information. The specific contact is listed for each solicitation. You may also consult the MOCS list from this site for additional contacts. The notices include many abbreviations and acronyms which are defined on the abbreviations link on our home page.

VENDOR ENROLLMENT APPLICATION
New York City procures approximately $17 billion worth of goods, services, construction and construction-related services every year. The NYC Procurement Policy Board Rules require that agencies primarily solicit from established mailing lists called bidder/proposer lists. Registration for these lists is free of charge. To register for these lists, prospective suppliers should fill out and submit the NYC-FMS Vendor Enrollment application, which can be found online at www.nyc.gov/selltonyc. To request a paper copy of the application, or if you are uncertain whether you have already submitted an application, call the Vendor Enrollment Center at 212-857-1680.
CONSTRUCTION SERVICES OR CONSTRUCTION RELATED SERVICES
The City of New York is committed to achieving excellence in the design and construction of its capital program, and building on the tradition of innovation in architecture and engineering that has contributed to the City's prestige as a global destination.
New York City procurement policy permits agencies to develop and solicit from pre-qualified lists of vendors, under prescribed circumstances. When an agency decides to develop a pre-qualified list, criteria for pre-qualification must be clearly explained in the solicitation and notice of the opportunity to pre-qualify for that solicitation must be published in at least five issues of the CR. Information and qualification questionnaires for inclusion on such list may be obtained directly from the Agency Chief Contracting Officer at each agency, (see Vendor Information Manual). A completed qualification questionnaire may be submitted to an Agency Chief Contracting Officer at any time, unless otherwise indicated, and action (approval or denial) shall be taken by the agency within 90 days from the date of submission. Any denial or revocation of pre-qualified status can be appealed to the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH). Section 3-10 of the Procurement Policy Board Rules describes the criteria for the general use of pre-qualified lists. For information regarding specific pre-qualified lists, please visit www.nyc.gov/selltonyc.
