Doing Business With F&E

If your firm is a furniture dealership, please ensure that you are an authorized dealer of the manufacturers and product lines that you represent. These manufacturers and products must also be listed on current New York State Office of General Services, NYC, or DOE contracts. While your firm's status as a prequalified vendor with the SCA means that you can do business with the SCA, manufacturers and products represented by you are subject to the additional requirements described in this paragraph.

If you are interested in becoming a network systems integrator? The SCA selects systems integrators through a competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) process. 

If you would like to have your firm added to the bidders list for future RFPs, please email your company information, including address, and phone number, to Nicole Bertrand, Senior Director of F&E. You may also use this email to submit product information or to seek further clarification about doing business with F&E.
