BILL NUMBER:S4855

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the state finance law, in relation to membership on the state
procurement council

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 161 of the Finance Law is amended to increase membership on the
state's procurement council from 20 to 21 members. The member, who
will be selected by the governor, shall be a representative of a
not-for-profit, New York-based organization representing agricultural
interests of the state.

JUSTIFICATION:

New York's number one industry is agriculture yet there is no one
person designated under current law to represent the State's
agricultural community on the State's procurement Council. Existing
members include the commissioner of the Office of General Services,
State Comptroller, Director of Budget, Chief Diversity Officer or
their respective designees, and seven members who are the heads of
other large and small state agencies chosen by the Governor or the
Governor's designees.

The Procurement Council is established under Article XI, Section 161
of the State Finance Law. It is responsible for the study, analysis
and development of recommendations to improve State procurement
policy and practices, and for development and issuance of guidelines
governing State agency procurement.

In an effort to increase the procurement of agricultural products
grown and processed in New York, It is important and necessary to
include on the Council a member of a not-for-profit, New York-based
organization to appropriately represent the interests of New York's
agricultural communities.

FISCAL IMPACT:
None.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
