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.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: 2011-12 S.5067A

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take place immediately and shall
expire and be deemed repealed June 30, 2019.
