Welcome City Purchasing Officers


Upcoming Networking Events
The Department of Small Business Services (SBS) regularly organizes industry targeted networking events to connect certified vendors with buyers. Networking events offer opportunities to meet with interested certified vendors that offer specific goods or services. See Events Calendar.

If your agency would like to host a networking event to find certified vendors, send an
 email to SBS.

SBS, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS), offers courses at the New York City Procurement Training Institute (PTI). The courses encompass both general procurement concepts and City-specific issues and practices, such as courses led by MOCS and SBS on fulfilling the requirements of Local Law 1. These courses are offered through the Citywide Training Center (CTC). Find information on courses and schedules on the
 CTC Website.

If your agency would like to request a training session to meet specific procurement needs, please send an email to SBS.
