BILL NUMBER:S2012

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the general municipal law, in relation to allowing
not-for-profits to make purchases through county contracts

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

To allow not-for-profit corporations that provide services to a county
to make purchases or to contract for services through the county
which the not-for-profit has a contract with in the same manner that
political subdivisions and districts located within the county can.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends the general municipal law by adding a new
Section 109-c to authorize not-for-profit corporations that provide a
service to a county, to make purchases or to contract for services,
other than services subject to Article eight, or any provision of the
labor law, through the county which the not-for-profit has a contract
with.

Section 2 of this bill is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

During these difficult economic times, local governments are
struggling to provide essential services while minimizing the impact
to taxpayers the rising costs for both commodities and services. One
way in which local governments are successfully minimizing costs to
taxpayers is through the collaborative procurement of goods and
services with other local governments.

As not-for-profits that provide services to counties are also
struggling during these economic times, this legislation will allow
not-for-profit corporations to also procure goods and services
collaboratively with local governments, to minimize the cost of
providing services.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009/2010 - S.5601 - Passed Senate

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
