Success Stories

State and Federal Solutions

State Solutions

The New York State Industries for the Disabled (NYSID) Preferred Source Vendor program allows any state agency to purchase products and services, without the need for an RFP, from a member agency that partners with local businesses when possible. This allows your state agency to customize a product or service and make a purchase very quickly. And you only need to deal with one vendor should a question or problem arise.

Herkimer Industries proudly maintains such contracts with the New York State Police, ENCON, Park Police, NYS Office of Court Administration, and several county and local agencies.

Please contact Suzanne Bakiewicz for questions, or to set up a meeting to learn about the Preferred Source Program in more detail.
