Vehicle Buyer Information, Fresh York State Auto Marketplace

Fresh York State Office of General Services

Welcome to the Fresh York State Vehicle Marketplace. It’s where authorized users can purchase cars (Class 1-2) and trucks (Class 3-8) from a multiplicity of vehicle dealers on contract (under awards twenty two thousand eight hundred ninety eight and 22904) by having OGS post their vehicle needs (a mini-bid) for vehicle dealers on contract to react to. This means there are more types of vehicles and manufacturers available on contract to rival for your business resulting in competitive pricing.

Don’t know exactly what you want? That’s okay. We have a few recommendations for you:

  • If it’s a truck (Class 3-8), you can post a request for comment (RFC) instead. When you accomplish Form A, just indicate on the form that it’s an RFC.
  • For cars and trucks, don’t be afraid to review the mini-bid results page to see what others have posted and review their mini-bid.
