Doing Business with HANO
Welcome to the Housing Authority of New Orleans’ Procurement and Contracts Department. The purpose of this section is to provide interested parties with a general introduction on how to do business with HANO and to provide information on upcoming procurement initiatives, such as Requests for Proposals (RFPs), Requests for Qualifications (RFQs) and Invitations to Bids (IFBs).
The primary mission of the Procurement and Contracts Department is to facilitate the agency’s mission of effectively providing quality safe, decent, and affordable housing to New Orleans’ citizens by creating and sustaining viable communities. The Department ensures that users obtain the appropriate quality commodities and services they require to successfully accomplish their respective missions, goals and objectives in the most timely manner at the most economical cost to the agency in compliance with all applicable regulations and ethical standards. Therefore, prior to award of a contract, due diligence is performed to determine responsibility of the vendors, which includes a review of past performance and verification they have not been excluded from participating in Federal Procurement and Non-Procurement programs.
To accomplish our mission of providing quality affordable housing, it is imperative that the Housing Authority of New Orleans works with vendors and contractors that can deliver the highest quality of goods and services at the best value to HANO. Consequently, it is the policy and practice of the Procurement and Contracts Department to afford qualified vendors the maximum opportunity to participate in contracting opportunities with HANO. The result of our effort is the procurement of quality goods and services in a fair, open, competitive and respectful process for everyone involved.
The Housing Authority committed to satisfying our business relationship with current vendors and building new relationships. As such, in an effort to streamline the process for payment, we issued a notice to current vendors detailing the Vendor Payment Process.
