CUNY advertises many of its procurement opportunities in the New York State Contract Reporter (www.nyscr.ny.gov) and in The City Record – NYC (www.nyc.gov/cityrecord). CUNY also may advertise procurement opportunities in specific trade or general publications depending on the market availability of the requested goods and services. Vendors are encouraged to review these advertisements to identify opportunities to work for CUNY as a prime contractor or subcontractor, as well as details on MWBE and SDVOB subcontracting goals.

Not all procurement opportunities are required to be advertised. Vendors are encouraged to contact purchasing departments to be notified of these opportunities. Placement of a vendor by a college on a potential bidders/proposers list does not guarantee receipt of solicitations from CUNY. In addition to contacting the college purchasing departments, vendors are strongly encouraged to actively review the NYS Contract Reporter and the City Record for available procurement opportunities from CUNY.

The City University Construction Fund (CUCF) and the Dormitory Authority State of New York (DASNY), which are organized and operated independently from CUNY, are responsible for the majority of construction on CUNY campuses and have Procurement Opportunities (CUCF) and Bid Forecast (DASNY) posted on their respective websites.
