Information
Preferred Sources

If you are a state agency, a public benefit corporation (including most public authorities), a municipality, or a school district you are required by law to purchase commodities and services from Preferred Sources first if a Preferred Source offering meets your needs for form, function, and utility.  

The advantage of this type of procurement is that you do not need to follow the competitive bid process.

While it is not possible for any private business to become a Preferred Source, it is possible for a business to partner with a Preferred Source. To identify these opportunities, contact the Preferred Source directly for information.
