Please Read: Changes to Procurement Legislation
The Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) and the New York State Legislature passed bill A00624 / S02219, which has been signed into law by Governor Hochul.
This law, effective March 17, 2023, amends the existing procurement flexibility that SUNY has had in place since 2011, and establishes a new level of oversight authority that will require prior approval from OSC.
All Purchase Orders and Contracts for goods, services, construction, and construction related services will now require prior approval by the NYS Attorney General (AG) and the State Comptroller where the aggregate of the procurement is valued at $75,000 or greater. (Previously, the threshold was $250,000.)
All Purchase Orders and Contracts for goods, services, construction, and construction related services with aggregate purchases over a twelve (12) month period and one-time procurements of $200,000 or more off a NYS Office of General Services (OGS) centralized contract will now require OSC approval. (Previously, no approval was required.)
It is essential that this information be kept in mind prior to the start of any procurement and note that the review/approval period for OSC is now 75 days from receipt and after AG approval. (Previously, OSC review/approval was 30 days from receipt.)
