Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 5 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended to add a new section 5-108 to read as follows:

§5-108. Monthly reports on capital projects. a. Definitions. As used in this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

Budget agency. The term “budget agency” means the agency from whose budget the funds for a capital project have been appropriated.

Construction phase. The term “construction phase” means the period of time between the commencement of the performance of work by the contractor as defined in the contract and when such work has reached substantial completion.

Managing agency. The term “managing agency” means the agency that is responsible for the functions and operations related to a capital project.

b. Every managing agency shall prepare a monthly report on the status of all capital projects that are or will be in the construction phase within the reporting period. Such report shall be disaggregated by project identification number and budget agency and shall include:

1. a schedule of work for the ensuing three months including the location of planned work by borough, community district and intersection; a description of the planned work; and the date or dates on which the work is scheduled; and

2. the status of all work included in the prior six reports required by paragraph one of this subdivision including the location of completed work; a description of the work completed; the date or dates on which the work was conducted; and, where applicable, an explanation why any work was not conducted or completed as scheduled.

The mayor, or the office or agency designated by the mayor, shall compile the reports of the managing agencies into a citywide report. The citywide report shall be reviewed to promote coordination between managing agencies and to ensure that work on capital projects is being scheduled and conducted in an efficient and effective manner.

d. The citywide report prepared by the mayor, or the office or agency designated by the mayor, shall be submitted to the speaker of the council, any utility providing electrical or gas service within the city and any entity with a franchise from the city to build and maintain subsurface electrical conduit and manhole infrastructure, and shall also be posted on the city’s website, in a non-proprietary format that permits automated processing capable of being downloaded in bulk.
