*HHS Accelerator System has launched!*
The HHS Accelerator System has launched to simplify and speed the NYC contract process for Client and Community Services providers.
The City of New York invests billions annually in Client and Community Services through competitive contracts. Contracts are awarded to providers to deliver a wide range of services such as mental health counseling, workforce training, foster care, after school programs, senior centers, and shelter & housing programs. The processes used to select providers and award contracts have been improved through deliberate and collaborative multi-year planning. Redundant paper-based requirements were removed, processes reengineered, and contract documents standardized.
The new HHS Accelerator System is hosted by the City of New York as a service to providers whose critical contributions keep New York City strong. Process changes and use of this new technology will reduce administrative burden, especially during challenging economic times for the sector and nation.
Combined, these system functions and reengineering will reduce administrative burden and promote innovation in service delivery to New York City residents.
You can now:
Create an account for your organization
Any Client and Community Services organization can use the HHS Accelerator System. Organizations may have more than one user. The first user to log in and create an account should have authorization to do so as they will control the access of other users (i.e. they will be your account administrator). Once other users are added, additional administrators may be assigned.
Store and share institutional documentsThe system’s Document Vault, a secure, web-based filing cabinet, allows easy document upload and sharing with other users. Encourage your organization’s funders and partners to create accounts and you can then share documents from one central location. If you currently have City contracts, you can share documents with City staff.
- Submit an HHS Accelerator Application
All providers interested in competing for future contracts must submit an HHS Accelerator Application. Starting in late 2013-early 2014, Agencies will issue Requests for Proposals (RFPs) through the system and receive provider proposals electronically. Future RFPs will focus on program design and scope which will promote innovation in service delivery to New York City residents.
