A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to a biannual report on the activities of the technology steering committee

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:                     

Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 3 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 3-117 to read as follows:

§ 3-117 Technology steering report. In April and October of each year, the mayor shall submit to the speaker of the council a report on the actions and decisions of the technology steering committee created under executive order number 8 for the year 2014, or any successor entity charged with coordination and oversight of the city’s technology strategies. Such report shall include: (i) a description of all citywide technology policies, standards and procedures, including those related to the acquisition of technology goods and services and those related to guidelines governing agency internal control environments, and a description of how such policies, standards and procedures have been amended since the prior report, if applicable; (ii) a description of the standards or policies determining which technology projects are subject to the technology steering committee’s review and, if applicable, a description of how such standards or policies have been amended since the prior report; (iii) a listing of the technology plans, initiatives and projects reviewed since the prior report and a description of any corresponding recommendations made by the technology steering committee; and (iv) for any contracts reviewed under item iii, a description of why the contract was selected for review, a list of city agencies involved in the contract, the number of contractors and subcontractors involved in the contract, the original contract price and, if the contract has been modified or extended, the current contract price. If the disclosure of any information required by the report would impair active contract bidding or negotiation then such information may be excluded to the extent necessary to protect such bidding or negotiation provided that the report shall indicate that such active bidding or negotiation is occurring and that the excluded information is provided in the next report following the conclusion of that bidding or negotiation.

§ 2. This local law shall take effect immediately.
