How To Do Business with The Department of Education

The NYC Department of Education’s (DOE) next “How to Do Business with the DOE” presentation will be held with the New York City Business Solutions on October 26, 2015 at the New York City Small Business Services, located at 110 William Street, 7th Floor New York, New York 10038. The event will be from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. To register, please click here. MWBEs and all other prospective vendors are invited to attend.

A summary of the DOE’s current solicitations can be viewed online at the links below:

Vendors who are interested in participating in any of these procurements must be registered on DOE’s Vendor Portal, available here. The solicitation and requirements are available for download on Vendor Portal. The free registration takes minutes to complete, and registering for Vendor Portal connects your firm to information about the wide range of goods and services purchased by the DOE. Once registered, your firm will receive e-mails whenever new bidding opportunities become available at the DOE. If you have any questions regarding any of these procurements, please contact DOE’s Vendor Hotline at (718) 935-2300 or by clicking here.

DOE’s Commitment to Equal Opportunity: DOE has contracts with vendors to purchase the goods and services necessary to ensure that students receive the quality education they deserve. The agency strives to give all businesses, including Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs), an equal opportunity to compete for DOE procurements. The agency casts a wide net in search of talented vendors, seeking qualified suppliers from all segments of the community. The DOE’s mission is to provide equal access to procurement opportunities for all qualified vendors including MWBEs. The DOE works to enhance the ability of MWBEs to compete for contracts and DOE is committed to ensuring that MWBEs fully participate in the procurement process.

DOE encourages all eligible vendors to seek MWBE certification. To learn more information about how to become certified as an MWBE by New York City, please click here. To learn more information about how to become certified as an MWBE by New York State, please go here
