Welcome to New York’s official website of state procurement activity

Welcome to the NYS Contract Reporter (NYSCR), New York’s official website of state procurement activity. All state agencies, authorities, state universities and public benefit corporations advertise bid opportunities valued at $50,000 or more on this website. In addition, many New York municipalities, museums, libraries, and elementary and secondary schools, as well as eligible not-for-profits, advertise bid solicitations on the NYSCR site.

In addition to bid advertising, the NYSCR offers free bid notification service, plus a Business Registry for use by agencies. Prime contractors can use the Registry to maximize their connections to subcontractors and suppliers.

All NYSCR services are free but you must register to access the site’s resources and sign up for bid notification messages. You can also complete an expanded registration, requiring more information about your business, to add your company to the Business Registry.
