Such sale, conveyance, lease, exchange, or other disposition may be made at a nominal cost and without the requirement of public auction or sealed bids, or restriction as to the term of any such lease or arrangement, and the provisions of subdivision b of section three hundred eighty-four of the New York city charter shall not apply in such cases. Conveyances made pursuant to this section shall include but shall not be limited to real property on which are situated facilities of, or are under the jurisdiction of, or assigned to, the board of education of the city school district of the city of New York.

  (1) In addition to the provisions authorized by subdivision four of section sixteen hundred eighty-two of this title four, any resolution or resolutions authorizing any bonds for the purpose of financing the cost of providing facilities for locally sponsored or city university community colleges may contain provisions which may be a part of the contract with the holders of such bonds providing for the creation and establishment and maintenance of reserve funds and payments to such reserve funds as hereinafter in this paragraph set forth.

  (2) The authority may create and establish one or more reserve funds to be known as debt service reserve funds and may pay into such reserve funds (i) any moneys appropriated and made available by the state for the purposes of such funds, (ii) any proceeds of the sale of bonds and notes to the extent provided in the resolution of the authority authorizing the issuance thereof, and (iii) any other moneys which may be made available to the authority for the purposes of such funds from any other source or sources. The moneys held in or credited to any debt service reserve fund established under this paragraph, except as hereinafter provided, shall be used solely for the payment of the principal of bonds of the authority secured by such reserve fund, as the same mature, the purchase of such bonds of the authority, the payment of interest on such bonds of the authority or the payment of any redemption premium required to be paid when such bonds are redeemed prior to maturity; provided, however, that moneys in any such fund shall not be withdrawn therefrom at any time in such amount as would reduce the amount of such fund to less than the maximum amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming due in any succeeding calendar year on the bonds of the authority then outstanding and secured by such reserve fund, except for the purpose of paying principal and interest on the bonds of the authority secured by such reserve fund maturing and becoming due and for the payment of which other moneys of the authority are not available. Any income or interest earned by, or increment to, any such debt service reserve fund due to the investment thereof may be transferred to any other fund or account of the authority to the extent it does not reduce the amount of such debt service reserve fund below the maximum amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming due in any succeeding calendar year on all bonds of the authority then outstanding and secured by such reserve fund.

  (3) The authority shall not issue bonds at any time if the maximum amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming due in a succeeding calendar year on the bonds outstanding and then to be issued and secured by a debt service reserve fund will exceed the amount of such reserve fund at the time of issuance, unless the authority at the time of issuance of such bonds, shall deposit in such reserve fund from the proceeds of the bonds so to be issued, or otherwise, an amount which together with the amount then in such reserve fund, will be not less than the maximum amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming due in any succeeding calendar year on the bonds then to be issued and on all other bonds of the authority then outstanding and secured by such reserve fund.

  (4) To ensure the continued operation and solvency of the authority for the carrying out of the public purposes relating to providing facilities for locally sponsored or city university community colleges provision is made in the foregoing provisions of this paragraph d for the accumulation in each debt service reserve fund of an amount equal to the maximum amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming due in any succeeding calendar year on all bonds of the authority then outstanding and secured by such reserve fund. In order further to ensure the maintenance of such debt service reserve funds, there shall be annually apportioned and paid to the authority for deposit in each debt service reserve fund such sum, if any, as shall be certified by the chairman of the authority to the governor and state director of the budget as necessary to restore such reserve fund to an amount equal to the maximum amount of principal and interest maturing and becoming due in any succeeding calendar year on the bonds of the authority then outstanding and secured by such reserve fund. The chairman of the authority shall annually, on or before December first, make and deliver to the governor and state director of the budget his certificate stating the sum, if any, required to restore each such debt service reserve fund to the amount aforesaid, and the sum or sums so certified, if any, shall be apportioned and paid to the authority during the then current state fiscal year. The principal amount of bonds secured by a debt service reserve fund or funds to which state funds are apportionable pursuant to this subparagraph shall be limited to the total amount of bonds and notes outstanding on the effective date of this act, plus the total amount of bonds and notes contracted after the effective date of this act to finance projects in progress on the effective date of this act as determined by the New York state public authorities control board created pursuant to section fifty of this chapter whose affirmative determination shall be conclusive as to all matters of law and fact solely for the purposes of the limitations contained in this subparagraph, but in no event shall the total amount of bonds so secured by such a debt service reserve fund or funds exceed two hundred seventy million dollars for locally sponsored community colleges and four hundred seventy million dollars for city university community colleges, excluding bonds issued to refund such outstanding bonds until the date of redemption of such outstanding bonds. As outstanding bonds so secured are paid, the amount so secured shall be reduced accordingly but the redemption of such outstanding bonds from the proceeds of refunding bonds shall not reduce the amount so secured.

  (5) In computing any debt service reserve fund for the purposes of this paragraph, securities in which all or a portion of such reserve fund shall be invested shall be valued at par, or if purchased at less than par, at their cost to the authority.

  (e) All the provisions of this title four not inconsistent with the provisions of this section sixteen hundred eighty shall be applicable with respect to any bonds of the authority issued to obtain funds for the purpose of providing facilities for locally sponsored community colleges.

  (f) No agreement by the dormitory authority with a local sponsor shall be effective unless and until it is approved by the state university trustees and the state director of the budget or his designee and, in the case of a locally sponsored community college in the city of New York, it is also approved by the director of the budget of the city of New York or his designee.

  (g) No agreement by the dormitory authority with the city university construction fund or with such fund and the city university with respect to a city university community college, entered into prior to July first, nineteen hundred eighty-five and no agreement entered into on or after July first, nineteen hundred eighty-five which is supplemental to any agreement entered into prior to such July first, shall be effective unless and until it is approved by the state director of the budget or his designee and by the director of the budget of the city of New York or his designee.

  10. The local sponsor shall have full power and authority to assign and pledge to the authority any and all public funds to be apportioned or otherwise made payable by a local sponsor or by the state of New York to the local sponsor for purposes of the locally sponsored community college pursuant to the provisions of subdivision eight of section sixty-three hundred four of the education law and any tuition and instructional fees received from students attending such locally sponsored community college.

  * 19. (a) The dormitory authority is empowered and authorized to enter into a lease, sublease or other agreement with the state university construction fund pursuant to which one or more state university educational facilities are to be designed, acquired, constructed, reconstructed, rehabilitated, improved or otherwise provided, or state university educational facilities are to be furnished or equipped, provided that such lease, sublease, or other agreement has been approved by the state university of New York, which shall be a party thereto. Such lease, sublease or other agreement may provide for the payment of annual rentals and other payments by the state university construction fund to the authority and contain such other terms and conditions as may be agreed upon by the parties thereto, including, but not limited to, provisions relating to the maintenance and operation of the state university educational facilities, the establishment of reserve funds, indemnities and the disposition of a facility or the interest of the authority therein prior to or upon the termination or expiration of such lease, sublease or other agreement. Such lease, sublease or other agreement shall be subject to the approval of the director of the budget.

  (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of the public lands law or any other law to the contrary, the state of New York, the state university of New York and the state university construction fund may sell, convey, lease, exchange or otherwise make available to the authority, for nominal consideration, the title to or an interest in real property for the purpose of providing state university educational facilities and may enter into any lease, sublease or other agreement with the authority in connection with state university educational facilities without public auction or bidding or restriction as to the term of such lease, sublease or other agreement.

  (c) Subject to the provisions of chapter fifty-nine of the laws of two thousand, the dormitory authority shall not issue any bonds for state university educational facilities purposes if the principal amount of bonds to be issued when added to the aggregate principal amount of bonds issued by the dormitory authority on and after July first, nineteen hundred eighty-eight for state university educational facilities will exceed thirteen billion one hundred seventy-eight million eight hundred sixty-four thousand dollars $13,178,864,000; provided, however, that bonds issued or to be issued shall be excluded from such limitation if: (1) such bonds are issued to refund state university construction bonds and state university construction notes previously issued by the housing finance agency; or (2) such bonds are issued to refund bonds of the authority or other obligations issued for state university educational facilities purposes and the present value of the aggregate debt service on the refunding bonds does not exceed the present value of the aggregate debt service on the bonds refunded thereby; provided, further that upon certification by the director of the budget that the issuance of refunding bonds or other obligations issued between April first, nineteen hundred ninety-two and March thirty-first, nineteen hundred ninety-three will generate long term economic benefits to the state, as assessed on a present value basis, such issuance will be deemed to have met the present value test noted above. For purposes of this subdivision, the present value of the aggregate debt service of the refunding bonds and the aggregate debt service of the bonds refunded, shall be calculated by utilizing the true interest cost of the refunding bonds, which shall be that rate arrived at by doubling the semi-annual interest rate (compounded semi-annually) necessary to discount the debt service payments on the refunding bonds from the payment dates thereof to the date of issue of the refunding bonds to the purchase price of the refunding bonds, including interest accrued thereon prior to the issuance thereof. The maturity of such bonds, other than bonds issued to refund outstanding bonds, shall not exceed the weighted average economic life, as certified by the state university construction fund, of the facilities in connection with which the bonds are issued, and in any case not later than the earlier of thirty years or the expiration of the term of any lease, sublease or other agreement relating thereto; provided that no note, including renewals thereof, shall mature later than five years after the date of issuance of such note. The legislature reserves the right to amend or repeal such limit, and the state of New York, the dormitory authority, the state university of New York, and the state university construction fund are prohibited from covenanting or making any other agreements with or for the benefit of bondholders which might in any way affect such right.

  (d) (1) (i) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the bonds of the authority issued for state university educational facilities purposes shall be sold to the bidder offering the lowest true interest cost, taking into consideration any premium or discount, not less than four nor more than fifteen days, Sundays excepted, after a notice of such sale has been published at least once in a newspaper of general circulation in the area served by the authority, which shall state the terms of the sale. The terms of the sale may not change unless notice of such change is published in such newspaper at least one day prior to the date of the sale as set forth in the original notice of sale. Advertisements shall contain a provision to the effect that the authority, in its discretion, may reject any or all bids made in pursuance of such advertisements, and in the event of such rejection, the authority is authorized to negotiate a private or public sale or readvertise for bids in the form and manner above described as many times as, in its judgment, may be necessary to effect a satisfactory sale.

  (ii) Notwithstanding the provisions of clause (i) of this subparagraph, whenever in the judgment of the authority the interest of the authority will be served thereby, the members of the authority, on the written recommendation of the executive director, may authorize the sale of such bonds at private or public sale on a negotiated basis or on either a competitive or negotiated basis. The authority shall set guidelines governing the terms and conditions of any such private or public sales.

  (2) The private or public bond sale guidelines set by the authority shall include, but not be limited to, a requirement that where the interests of the state will be served by a private or public sale of bonds, the authority shall select underwriters for private or public bond sales conducted pursuant to a request for proposal process undertaken in accordance with the authority's procurement guidelines adopted pursuant to section twenty-eight hundred seventy-nine of this chapter from qualified underwriters taking into account, among other things, qualifications of underwriters as to experience, their ability to structure and sell authority bond issues, anticipated costs to the authority, the prior experience of the authority with the firm, and, if any, the capitalization of such firms.

  (3) The authority shall have the power from time to time to amend such private or public bond sale guidelines in accordance with the provisions of this section.

  (4) No such private or public bond sale on a negotiated basis shall be conducted by the authority without prior approval of the comptroller.

  (5) The authority shall annually prepare and approve a bond sale report which shall include the private or public bond sale guidelines as specified in subparagraph two of this paragraph, amendments to such guidelines since the last private or public bond sale report, an explanation of the bond sale guidelines and amendments, and the results of any sale of bonds conducted during the fiscal year. Such bond sale report may be a part of any other annual report that the authority is required to make.

  (6) (i) The authority shall annually submit its bond sale report to the comptroller and copies thereof to the senate finance committee and the assembly ways and means committee.

  (ii) The authority shall make available to the public copies of its bond sale report upon reasonable request therefor.

  (7) Nothing contained in this paragraph shall be deemed to alter, affect the validity of, modify the terms of or impair any contract or agreement made or entered into in violation of, or without compliance with, the provisions of this section.

  (e) The state shall, in addition to any other moneys appropriated and made available for the support of the state university of New York, annually appropriate and pay to the state university construction fund an amount equal to the aggregate of all annual rentals and other payments due to the dormitory authority from the state university construction fund on account of state university educational facilities, which rentals and other payments are payable by the fund pursuant to any lease, sublease or other agreement entered into between the dormitory authority and the state university construction fund on or after July first, nineteen hundred eighty-eight, for the year commencing April first immediately succeeding the filing of the report required to be submitted by the state university construction fund pursuant to subdivision two of section three hundred eighty-two of the education law. Such amount shall be paid to the state university construction fund as follows:

  (1) on or before the fifteenth day of September of the fiscal year of the state, the amount required to be paid by the state university construction fund on account of state university educational facilities under any such lease, sublease or other agreement on or before the tenth day of October of such state fiscal year;

  (2) no later than three business days prior to the tenth day of April of the fiscal year of the state, the amount required to be paid by the state university construction fund on account of state university educational facilities under any such lease, sublease or other agreement on or before the tenth day of April of such state fiscal year; and

  (3) on such day or days as shall be prescribed under any such lease, sublease, or other agreement, the amount required to be paid by the state university construction fund for the purpose of making payments under any interest rate exchange or similar agreements entered into pursuant to article five-D of the state finance law for state university educational facilities.

  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the state comptroller shall annually encumber that portion of the amount appropriated for payment to the state university construction fund equal to the amount required to be paid pursuant to subparagraphs two and three of this paragraph in the fiscal year following the year in which the appropriation is made pursuant to any lease, sublease or other agreement between the fund, the authority and the state university of New York with respect to authority bonds issued or interest rate exchange and similar agreements entered into for state university educational facilities, before the end of the fiscal year in which the appropriation is made. The amount so encumbered shall be payable to the fund pursuant to subparagraphs two and three of this paragraph, in the manner prescribed by law.

  In the event of the failure of the state to pay the state university construction fund when due pursuant to this subdivision all or part of such amounts, the state university construction fund shall forthwith make and deliver to the state comptroller a certificate stating the amount of the payment required to have been made by the state, the amount paid by the state and the amount remaining unpaid by the state. The state comptroller, after giving written notice to the director of the budget, shall pay to the state university construction fund the amount set forth in such certificate as remaining unpaid, which amount shall be paid from any moneys appropriated by the state for or on account of the operating costs of the state university of New York and not yet paid. The amount required to be paid by the state comptroller pursuant to this subdivision shall be paid to the state university construction fund as soon as practicable after receipt of the certificate of the state university construction fund and notice to the director of the budget is given, whether or not the moneys from which such payment is to be made are then due and payable to the state university.

  (f) The amount of state appropriations payable to the state university of New York from which the state comptroller has made a payment pursuant to this subdivision shall be reduced by the amount so paid to the state university construction fund, notwithstanding the amount appropriated and apportioned by the state to the state university of New York, and the state shall not be obligated to make and the state university of New York shall not be entitled to receive any additional apportionment or payment of state moneys.

  (g) The amount of money required to be paid pursuant to this subdivision shall be determined from the report required to be submitted by the state university construction fund pursuant to subdivision two of section three hundred eighty-two of the education law. Nothing contained in this subdivision shall be construed to create an obligation upon the state to appropriate moneys for or on account of the operating costs of state university educational facilities, to preclude the state from reducing the amount of moneys appropriated or level of support provided for the operating costs of the state university of New York from the amount appropriated or level of support provided in any prior state fiscal year, or to preclude the state from altering or modifying the manner in which it provides for the operating costs of the state university of New York.

  (1) a requirement that the residential institution for children establish an account with a bank or trust company acceptable to the dormitory authority into which the residential institution for children shall deposit, or cause to be deposited, all amounts received by such residential institution for children from any school district, social service district or any other payor on account of the residential services provided by such residential institution for children.
