Procurement Opportunities

Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises

NYSIF is committed to achieving the statewide goal of increasing opportunities for New York State Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBE), and encourages participation of MWBE in NYSIF procurement projects.

We encourage any firm that believes it meets the state requirements for certification to visit NYS Empire State Development for more information about the program and how to apply for certification.

In addition, as allowed by Workers' Compensation Law, NYSIF has established an MWBE asset management and financial institution strategy aimed at increasing the utilization of MWBE investment and financial services firms. The MWBE strategy adopted an objective standard for reporting on MWBE usage for entities owned by 51% or more minority group members and/or women.

NYSIF has established a minimum goal of 30% MWBE participation for its contracts.

For more information on MWBE certification programs please e-mail us at contracts@nysif.com.

If your firm is interested in being added to NYSIF's bidder database, please complete this form. Bidders in the database are notified by email when a solicitation is released for public bidding for the categories identified on the form.

Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses

The Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business Act, signed into law by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on May 12, 2014, allows eligible Veteran business owners to become certified as a New York State Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business (SDVOB) in order to increase participation in New York State’s contracting opportunities.

We encourage any firm that believes it meets the state requirements for certification to visit the Division of Service-Disabled Veterans’ Business Development within the NYS Office of General Services (OGS) at www.ogs.ny.gov or contact them at VeteransDevelopment@ogs.ny.gov
