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 the NYS Department of Economic 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 20% MWBE participation for its contracts.

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