A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to reporting on contract awards made from discretionary funds allocated by a council member

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Title 1 of Chapter 6 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended to add a new section 6-142 to read as follows:

§ 6-142 Reporting on contract awards made from discretionary funds allocated by a council member. a. Within ten days of the end of each quarter of the fiscal year, the city chief procurement officer shall submit to the speaker of the council a report on the status of contract awards made from discretionary funds allocated by a council member. Such report shall be disaggregated by contracting agency, source of funding, allocating council member and entity to which the funds were allocated and shall include: 

1. the date on which each contract was entered into or the reason why no contract had yet been entered into;

2. for each contract which was entered into, the date on which such contract was registered with the office of the comptroller or the reason why such contract had not yet been registered; and

3. for each contract entered into and registered, the dollar amount of funds reimbursed pursuant to the contract, and, where full reimbursement under the contract has not yet been made, the reason why full reimbursement has not yet been made.

                     b. On December 1, 2019 and each December 1 thereafter, the city chief procurement officer shall submit to the speaker of the council a final report on the information required by paragraph three of the prior subdivision for the prior fiscal year.

c. On the day that the third report of the fiscal year is submitted, the city chief procurement officer shall provide written notification to every council member who allocated discretionary funds where pursuant to such allocation a contract was not yet entered into, not yet registered with the office of the comptroller or not yet fully reimbursed. For contracts which were not yet fully reimbursed, such notification shall include the dollar amount of funds outstanding for reimbursement.

§ 2. This local law takes effect July 1, 2018.
