BILL NUMBER:S7523

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the public authorities law, in relation to the construction of
certain facilities for the New York city housing authority

PURPOSE:
To amend the public authorities law by
authorizing the
Dormitory Authority of the State of New York to enter into contracts
for construction related services with the New York City Housing
Authority.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of this bill would amend paragraph
(b) of subdivision 2 of section 1676 of the public authorities law to
add a new undesignated paragraph that would authorize the Dormitory
Authority of the State of New York to enter into contracts for
construction related services with the New York City Housing Authority.

Section 2 of this bill would amend subdivision 1 of section 1680 of
the public authorities law by adding a new undesignated paragraph
that would authorize the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York
to enter into contracts for construction related services with the
New York City Housing Authority.

Section 3 of this bill establishes the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
The New York Housing Authority ("NYCHA") spends over
$300 million annually for capital projects throughout its 335
developments in New York City. Several of these projects involve
rather complex engineering issues associated with an aging
infrastructure. This bill would allow NYCHA to contract with the
Dormitory Authority of the State of New York ("DASNY") to assist in
the development of these projects.

DASNY oversees a portfolio of construction projects worth more than $6
billion. For more than a decade DASNY has acted as a construction
manager for municipalities and their agencies throughout the state.
They offer a full range of construction phases. DASNY handles
day-to-day construction coordination issues and interpretations of
contract documents.

Due to years of Federal and local under funding NYCHA's total capital
project needs exceed $500 million. In order to meet those needs NYCHA
will have to be creative and find ways to do more with fewer public
dollars. Having the ability to work with DASNY will give NYCHA a tool
to achieve this goal.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPACT ON STATE:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
