To All State Agencies and Others Authorized to Use State Contracts:
The List of Preferred Source Offerings is updated periodically to reflect the addition of new commodities and services and other changes relevant to the authorized users of NYS contracts. This bulletin is a summary of updates made to “The List” following the July 14, 2016 meeting of the NY State Procurement Council. In our continuing effort to provide our customers with comprehensive procurement information OGS will issue a General Information Bulletin following each Procurement Council meeting (generally quarterly), as needed, to advise State and local government purchasers of updates and newly listed items.
You may access the List of Preferred Source Offerings at http://www.ogs.ny.gov/procurecounc/pdfdoc/pslist.pdf.
