The New York State Office of Children and Family Services strives to initiate all contracts in a timely manner. OCFS has the second-highest number of not-for-profit contracts of any state agency.

OCFS provides technical assistance and support to the non-profit contractors throughout the process as they establish programs and services.NYS Office of Children and Family Services
