What is the Business Registry?

For state agencies, the Invest Newark Business Registry will function as a bid list for agency procurements, including discretionary purchases, as well as extend an agency’s outreach for advertised procurements. Agency users can search the Registry by category, by NAICS code or by keyword in the company description, and filter by minority/women-owned business enterprise (MWBE), Service-Disabled Veteran Owned (SDVOB), and other discretionary spending criteria.

The Business Registry account is a company account, rather than an individual account, so several users from a firm can use it to post ads. Each employee that will be accessing your company’s Business Registry account must first sign up for an Invest Newark user account. Once your employees have established individual user accounts, they can access your Business Registry account using the Business Registry account’s shared username and password.

Who can join the registry

Any company based in New Jersey may apply for inclusion in the Business Registry. Companies based in other states or countries may apply for inclusion in the Business Registry provided the state or country in which the company is located does not engage in discriminatory purchasing practices. These discriminatory jurisdictions are identified within the Business Registry application.

How will my company benefit from being listed?

Listing your company has its privileges. The Business Registry creates a separate, searchable account for your company that provides information about your firm so that state agencies or prime contractors can contact your business directly with contracting opportunities. It also allows your company to advertise its government subcontracting opportunities to thousands of businesses for free.
