How to get started doing business with the City
Payee Information Portal
To do business with the City, vendors must register in the City’s Payee Information Portal (PIP). In PIP, vendors can view ﬁnancial transactions with the City of New York, register for Electronic Funds Transfer payments and much more. Once enrolled, vendors must report their subcontractors and subcontractor payments within PIP. Vendors who have questions or issues regarding online enrollment should contact the Vendor Enrollment Center at (212) 857-1680 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your organization does not have a PIP Account, please refer to the PIP Activation Guide for help on how to create one.
For any additional information on PIP Account maintenance please consult the PIP Account Tutorial. If you have any difﬁculty creating or updating your account in PIP, please reach out to your agency contact. If you need further assistance, please contact the Mayor’s Ofﬁce of Contract Services (MOCS).
The Procurement and Sourcing Solutions Portal is the City’s new, user-friendly, online procurement portal which allows vendors to submit disclosure information required for contracting and access performance evaluations. PASSPort moves VENDEX questionnaires online. All vendors are encouraged to complete the vendor enrollment process in PASSPort to speed up future contracting activities.
HHS Accelerator was launched to simplify and speed the contract process for Client and Community based Services providers. An infrastructure for nonproﬁts to partner with each other and with City agencies to deliver essential health and community support services Through a deliberate and collaborative multi-year planning process with providers, redundant paper based requirements were removed, processes reengineered, and contract documents standardized allowing the City and providers to focus more on mission critical activities. Vendors who are looking to partner with the City to provide Human Client Services can ﬁnd out about contracting opportunities through Health and Human Services Accelerator.
