Top 10 NYC Women in Public Procurement

Top 10 NYC Women in Public Procurement

The National Procurement Institute (NPI), a non-profit organization that promotes best practices, education, and professional development for procurement professionals in the United States, declared March as the National Procurement Month to recognize the important role of procurement professionals in organizations across the country and to promote awareness of the value of public procurement.

As a company committed to improving government procurement through the use of technology and innovation, and considering that International Women’s Day is on March 8th, we believe it's fitting to celebrate this month by honoring women in public procurement in New York City.

The City has many talented and dedicated women who are leading the way in public procurement, and they deserve to be recognized:

Emily Edwards, Executive Director, BID Program and Organizational Development at the NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS).

Dawn Smith, Director of Purchasing at the NYC Citywide Administrative Services. 

Rogina Coar-Smith, Executive Director at the NYC Vendor Services Department and the NYC SBS Procurement Technical Assistance Center (NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS).

Kadian Outar, Executive Director, Office of Citywide Equity and Inclusion at NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services.

Dalsie Andrade, Director of Business Development, Division of Minority and Women's Business Development at the Empire State Development.

Michelle O., Director of MWBE Customer Service, Division of Minority and Women's Business Development at the Empire State Development.

Lisa M. Flores, Chief City Procurement Officer and Director at the Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS).

Jacqueline Mallon, First Deputy Commissioner at the NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS).

Anna Yakubova, Assistant Commissioner of M/WBE Recruitment and Eligibility for the Division of Economic and Financial Opportunity (DEFO) at the NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS).

Lisette Camilo, Chief Administrative Officer at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority - Former Commissioner oat the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS).

Having women in the fields of public procurement and public budget management is crucial, as they were not traditionally given these roles and responsibilities. It is therefore significant to recognize the increasing number of women who are now leading and managing public purchases, contributing to narrowing the gender gap in this sector.

If you are acquainted with a prominent woman in public procurement, feel free to send us a message! We would love to connect with her!
