If your company is interested in being considered as a potential supplier for a Federal Reserve Bank, register today through our online registration tool. You will receive an email confirmation when your registration has been completed. Once you register electronically, Federal Reserve Bank staff will be able to view your information and capabilities when searching for potential suppliers. You may be contacted as procurement opportunities that match the products or services you provide become available.
We solicit competitive bids or proposals for the goods and services we need. We award contracts to those suppliers that offer the best total value in terms of price, quality, availability, and service. Competitive proposals and bids are often issued electronically and require that a supplier's proposals or bid be submitted electronically.
Completing registration does not guarantee that your company will receive an invitation to bid or a contract. Nor does it imply that your company has any type of procurement relationship with the Federal Reserve, either now or in the future. Each Federal Reserve Bank is a separate legal entity and processes acquisitions according to the guidelines adopted by that Reserve Bank.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, disability or sexual orientation in our contracting and procurement activities.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston expects its officers and employees to adhere to the highest possible standards of integrity.
