1. Sub vendor Contracts Status

It is our wish to not only provide greater transparency, but to help prime and sub vendors track the progress of their sub-contracts within the City. In order to achieve this, we needed to provide Agency Chief Contracting Officers (ACCOs) with a simple way to review all of their prime contracts while encouraging more Prime vendors to enter their sub vendor information into the City’s Payment Information Portal.


By including additional subcontractor information into Checkbook, we are now able to allow:

  • 1) All interested parties to review sub vendor information, including contracts and payments.
  • 2) Interested parties to see who has declared and entered sub vendor information on prime contracts into PIP as required by MOCS.
  • 3) Prime vendors a simple way to review the status of all their contracts.
  • 4) Sub vendors to cross-reference information entered in PIP to their own accounts payable systems to ensure proper, prompt payment.
a. Prime Vendor Contract Status

Whether prime vendors have uploaded sub vendor information is displayed using one of three options.

  • 1 = No Data Entered. Prime has not entered any sub vendor information
  • 2 = Yes. Prime has indicated sub vendors on contract
  • 3 = No. Prime has no sub vendor on contract
  • 4 = Not Required. Prime Current Amount<250,000 and/or prime contract associated to specified list of award method and contract types exclusions.
