BILL NUMBER:S3920

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the education law, in relation to authorizing Cornell university
to enter into memoranda of understanding with state agencies to provide
services and technical assistance

PURPOSE:
To authorize the use of memoranda of understanding between
the State of New York and Cornell University, for the purposes of
procuring services or technical assistance from said university or
providing funds to said university, related to said university's land
grant mission.

SUMMARY OF PROVISION:
The bill amends § 5704 of the education law,
allowing for the use of memoranda of understanding (MOUs) between
Cornell University and the State of New York.

EXISTING LAW:
§ 5704 of the education law.

JUSTIFICATION:
Allowing for the use of an MOU, to detail the terms of
bilateral contracts between the State of New York and Cornell
university, will facilitate state mandated projects undertaken by
Cornell due to its status as a land grant university. Cornell has a
large number of very long-term and recurring contracts to do work for
state agencies. Allowing agencies to elect to enter into an MOU with
Cornell would result in significant administrative time and cost
savings for the state.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
Governor's Program Bill #29.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None for state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
