DOT is participating in a citywide effort to review and reform the current procurement processes. DOT will participate in ongoing pilots to compress the procurement timeline and add more predictability to the process, so that, among other improvements, the vendor pool is expanded and smaller vendors are better able to compete.

DOT will continue to participate in a citywide effort to review and reform the current procurement processes.
In coordination with the Mayor's Office of Contracts (MOCS), DOT is on the Steering Committee to review and reform the City's procurement process. One recent update includes PassPort, an outward facing system for vendors to self-report their compliance status for agency and MOCS review, thus speeding up the procurement process and freeing up agency resources.
