  in relation to making technical corrections relating to thresholds for
  the publication of procurement opportunities


  Section  1. Section 146 of the economic development law, as amended by
chapter 95 of the laws of 2000 and renumbered by chapter 137 of the laws
of 2008, is amended to read as follows:
  S 146. Approval of comptroller. The comptroller shall not  approve  or
file  any  procurement contract for the acquisition of goods or services
in the amount of [fifteen] FIFTY thousand dollars or more unless  notice
as provided in section one hundred forty-two of this article shall first

due. Provided, however,  such  requirement  of  publication  of  advance
notice  shall  not apply to contracts exempt from such requirement under
section one hundred forty-four of this article; provided  further,  that

shall  not  be construed to limit, in any manner, the right of the comp-
troller to demand evidence of adequate competition or such other  proofs
as he OR SHE may require in the discharge of his OR HER responsibilities
pursuant  to  section one hundred twelve of the state finance law or any
other provision of law.
  S 2. Subdivision 6-a of section 163 of the state finance law, as added
by section 4 of part D of chapter 56 of the laws of 2006, is amended  to
read as follows:
  6-a. Discretionary purchases. Notwithstanding the provisions of subdi-
vision two of section one hundred twelve of this chapter relating to the
