The State of New Jersey has assembled a PPE Supplier Registry Public Listing.

The information about the vendors and products in this listing was volunteered by the vendors, compiled by the State, and is provided for the express purpose of assisting private businesses and organizations in New Jersey access potential suppliers for PPE and other COVID-related goods and services. Any other use of this information is prohibited.

All parties are strongly advised to exercise due diligence when selecting vendors and are responsible for ensuring the quality and regulatory compliance of all good/services purchased.

Please ensure you are following your organization’s policies and practices concerning vendor capability and responsibility to ensure that you are making a safe purchase.

Request for Information (RFI)

Additionally, NJEDA has issued a Request for Information (RFI) [PDF] to seek information, ideas, and solutions on how to ensure the state’s small businesses and non-profits have economical and equitable access to the appropriate personal protective equipment and safeguarding tools that they will need to reopen and operate safely. The RFI includes a special concern that PPE be available to organizations run by and for women, minorities and people of color, veterans, and other historically disadvantaged communities.

In particular, the NJEDA is seeking guidance on how to accelerate market-based solutions to meet the need for PPE, including an understanding of the support necessary from the State government, or other interested parties such as corporations or philanthropies, that could best reinforce those efforts.

Entities that can respond to the RFI may include: PPE manufacturers and suppliers, technology companies, medical or office equipment retailers or wholesalers, existing or new buying cooperatives or consortia, non-profit organizations, industry or trade groups, and post-secondary educational institutions. Respondents can offer ideas for full solutions for sourcing and distribution of PPE or could address one aspect of the need, such as technological solutions or small business insights.

All questions concerning the RFI must be submitted in writing no later than 11:59PM EDT, on Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020, via e-mail to: SmallBusinessPPE@njeda.com. Answers to questions submitted will be publicly posted on the Authority’s website on or about Wednesday, June 24th, 2020.

Final responses to the RFI must be submitted in writing no later than 11:59PM EDT, on Friday, June 26th, 2020 via e-mail to: SmallBusinessPPE@njeda.com. The subject line of the e-mail should state: “RFI Response-2020-RFI-OET-Covid19-PPE-107.”
