BILL NUMBER:S3015A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to certain contracts for state university of New York health care facilities; and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE: To conform provisions of Education Law Section 355(16)(c) relating to construction contracts for State University hospitals to provisions of Education Law Section 355(5)(a).

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the legislation amends Section 355(16)(16) to delete the requirement that the Attorney General, the State Comptroller and the Director of the Budget approve construction contracts for the hospitals of the State University.

Section 2 provides that the legislation takes effect immediately, but sunsets on June 30, 2016.

EXISTING LAW: As amended by Ch.58 of the Laws of 2011 to give the State University more flexibility and efficiency in procurement, Education Law Section 355(5)(a) no longer requires that the Attorney General and State Comptroller pre-approve State University contracts for equipment, construction and construction-related services. The amendments to Education Law Section 355(5)(a) sunset June 30, 2016.

JUSTIFICATION: The legislation effects a technical amendment to conform the provisions of Education Law Section 355(16)(c) to recent amendments to Education Law Section 355(a) effected by Ch. 58 of the Laws of 2011. As amended, Section 355(5)(a) no longer requires that the Attorney General and State Comptroller pre-approve State University contracts for equipment, construction and construction-related services. The provisions of Section 355(5)(a) apply to all State University institutions, including the health care facilities of the State University.
