Established in 1975 and based in Albany, NYSID is a not-for-profit membership organization with a 40-year mission of creating jobs for New Yorkers with disabilities.
NYSID and its member agencies are a proven procurement solution for government agency customers. NYSID members are the employment resource centers for individuals with diverse abilities. Our member agencies also partner with private sector New York State businesses, including Minority and Woman-Owned Business and veterans’ support programs.
Employment on a NYSID contract transforms lives and communities:
Preferred Source procurement satisfies the obligation to comply with New York State Finance Law Section 162's mandate to purchase approved goods and services provided by New Yorkers with disabilities.
NYSID prices are approved by the New York State Office of General Services.
New York State benefits by having a workforce which includes empowered individuals with disabilities, who bring stability to communities through wages earned and spent where they live.
