CUNY uses a University-wide collaborative purchasing process for core goods and services managed by the Office of University Controller (University-wide contracts) with decentralized purchasing at the colleges to meet specific needs (college-specific procurements). To obtain information on current solicitations or on any potential bidders/proposers’ lists, vendors are encouraged to contact the Office of University Controller and the Purchasing Director at each CUNY campus.

CUNY advises vendors that are interested in contracting with CUNY’s Senior Colleges, Honors and Professional Schools to obtain a Vendor ID with the New York State Statewide Financial System (SFS). Additional information regarding how to register for a SFS Vendor ID can be found at www.sfs.ny.gov. Vendors interested in doing business with CUNY’s Community Colleges must obtain a Vendor ID with the New York City Financial Management System (FMS). Additional information regarding how to register for a FMS Vendor ID can be found at www.nyc.gov/pip.
