Contracts and Solicitations

NYSERDA contracts are initiated by two methods: Competitive Solicitations and Unsolicited Proposals; however, it is NYSERDA's policy to use competitive solicitations to the maximum extent possible. Notices of competitive solicitations are provided to individuals, firms, and organizations through the New York State Contract Reporter, the State Register (when applicable), targeted mailings and postings to NYSERDA's website.

Competitive solicitations are open to all qualified firms. Proposals are expeditiously and vigorously peer-reviewed. Successful proposers are awarded projects under NYSERDA's streamlined contracting process.

NYSERDA fosters and promotes the participation of minority- and women-owned business enterprises.
