Minority & Women Owned Business Enterprises

The NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP) fully embraces New York's statewide initiative for the use of Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs) as described in Executive Order #8 and Article 15-A of the Executive Law. Consistent with the Governor's efforts, OPRHP is committed to promoting meaningful participation of NYS certified MWBEs for agency contracts and procurements.

OPRHP will continue to undertake vigorous efforts to maximize MWBE participation in the areas of capital projects and discretionary procurement of goods and services by directing procurement opportunities to MWBEs for open market and procurement card purchases.

In keeping with this commitment OPRHP intends (as the fiscal climate allows) to offer training workshops with MWBE and NON-MWBE contractors, subcontractors and regional staff to promote, support and offer guidance for our MWBE program.

Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business

The Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business Act (SDVOB), which was signed into law on May 12, 2014, encourages and supports eligible businesses to play a greater role in the economy of the State by increasing participation in New York State's contracting opportunities.

The Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP) is committed to promoting the use of SDVOB goals through applicable procurements to continue its support of Article 17-B to afford contracting opportunities to certified SDVOB.
