The New York City Department of Education (DOE) strives to give all businesses, including Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs), an equal opportunity to compete for DOE procurements. The DOE’s mission is to provide equal access to procurement opportunities for all qualified vendors, including MWBEs, from all segments of the community. The DOE works to enhance the ability of MWBEs to compete for contracts. DOE is committed to ensuring that MWBEs fully participate in the procurement process.

Guidance for first-time Microsoft One-Drive Users:

Microsoft OneDrive (“OneDrive”) is a file hosting and synchronization service operated by Microsoft as part of its web version of Microsoft Office. OneDrive allows users to grant access to files which are too large to transmit via electronic mail to other users. If you do not have Office 365, please take the following steps to gain access to a free version of OneDrive so that you can upload those bid submission documents which are too large to transmit via electronic mail: 1. Conduct an internet search for “Microsoft OneDrive;” 2. Navigate to the official Microsoft website and sign up for a free account; 3. Once you have created a folder for the solicitation whose name matches the subject line of your Bid Submission Email, upload the documents relevant to your bid submission in this folder. 4. Create a share link for this folder; 5. Be sure to check your share settings so that anyone receiving the link that you create will be able to open the link and access the files. If your share link permissions are restricted (e.g. to only your organization in Office 365), the DOE will not be able to view your solicitation documents. It is your responsibility to ensure that the link(s you provide allows the DOE to view, download and/or open your documents; and 6.
