Currently, this legacy bid system is housing solicitations and information published before October 21, 2016. All new solicitations published after October 21, 2016 are located on the updated Empire State Purchasing Group.

Welcome to the New Empire State Purchasing Group. This New York bid system provides a way for local government agencies across all regions of New York state to more effectively notify vendors of RFP and bid opportunities, while increasing efficiency and lowering costs for New York agencies (and taxpayers) through shared resources. The procurement solution delivers convenient, centralized online access to open New York RFP and bid opportunities, reducing paperwork and making it easier for vendors to do business with local New York government organizations.

Vendors are encouraged to register on the Empire State Purchasing System to receive direct access to the RFPs, bids, quotes, addenda and awards posted directly by local New York government agencies.

For technical support or questions on using the bid system, please contact Support.

Local agencies located within the state of New York who are interested in joining the purchasing group to increase vendor competition and efficiency in bid distribution should visit the SourceSuite procurement site for more information or contact 800-835-4603.
