Hi, searching for any payments since 1999 to Fresh Direct or any of their subsidiaries, but like 1,000,000 transactions come up not related, can you help me do the right search? Thanks!

Hello Harry,

I ran the same query and the reason that you are getting over a million results is because Fresh Direct is not in the system as a vendor. Smart search is returning any result that has the words, 'fresh' and/or 'direct'.

Hi thanks!

But I know Fresh Direct, Fresh Direct LLC, or some other name, has received $ from NYC, how do we find those payments?

Ok, let's try this from a different viewpoint. Do you know which NYC agency made payments to Fresh Direct, LLC?

Thanks for your help, they have numerous names though.

It would have been NYC IDA or NYC EDC

We just recently added spending to vendors by the NYCEDC. You can find EDC as an Agency under "Other Government Agencies". In an effort to enhance transparency and accountability of NYCEDC spending, the New York City Comptroller’s Office has presented vendor data on NYCEDC contracts.
NYCEDC’s dashboard now provides all prime contract registrations beginning from July 1, 2012 to the present. Any contract that had a first time registration prior to Fiscal Year 2013 will not display prime vendor information at this time.

ah, ok, will look, it started before then... ugh.

FreshDirect got millions to open in LIC, now they want to move. Also the union is suing because they fired workers after the snow storm, and yet IDA and EDC are still offering them tens of millions inn subsidies, please bring this to the attention of the right staff to look to this and audit the deal. thanks!
