    Benefits of Registration:

    The biggest value of SCD registration comes from Chapter 12¼ of the New Haven Code of Ordinances that directs City of New Haven departments and agencies to use the services of contractors registered in the program.

    - Notification of upcoming contracting opportunities
    - Increased access to bid on City funded contracts
    - Exclusive networking opportunities
    - One-on-one assistance
    - Company listing in the program’s online directory
