GO TO AWARD #22439


New York State Procurement recognizes that as advancements in technology continue to grow at a rapid pace, the need to hire hourly based information technology staff is essential to an agency's success, and the hiring of hourly staff is and has been an ever-increasing challenge for state and local governments.

The HBITS contracts are written so that any government entity across the state can use them, including:

  • state agencies
  • local governments
  • public authorities
  • public school and fire districts
  • public and nonprofit libraries
  • other nonpublic/nonprofit organizations

Referred to as “authorized users,” these groups can use the HBITS contracts without seeking any special permissions.
