DASNY strives to purchase goods or services, including construction contracts, construction-related professional services, commodities and financial services, from Small Businesses; those certified as Minority or Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBE); and goods or technology that is recycled or re-manufactured. To help achieve these goals, DASNY has established a Discretionary Purchases procedure that may be utilized where the contract to be awarded does not exceed two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000). DASNY is authorized to procure the goods, services or technology with an informal competitive process, provided that any such goods, services or technology are purchased at a reasonable price. Requests for proposals (RFPs), invitation for bids (IFBs) and formal bid opening dates are not required to be used in a solicitation. However, notice of the prospective purchase of goods or services shall be provided as set forth in DASNY’s Discretionary Purchases procedure.
