A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to including the most recent data available in the citywide M/WBE disparity study

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

     

Section 1. Subparagraph a of paragraph 4 of subdivision d of section 6-129 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as amended by local law number 1 for the year 2013, is amended to read as follows:

                     (4) (a) No later than 2015, the commissioner, in consultation with the city chief procurement officer, shall, for each industry classification and each minority group, review and compare the availability rates of firms owned by minorities and women to the utilization rates of such firms in agency contracts and direct subcontracts, and shall on the basis of such review and any other relevant information, where appropriate, revise by rule the citywide participation goals set forth in this subdivision. In making such revision, the commissioner shall use the most recent data available to consider the extent to which discrimination continues to have an impact on the ability of minorities and women to compete for city contracts and subcontracts. The commissioner shall submit the results of such review and any proposed revisions to the participation goals to the speaker of the council at least sixty days prior to publishing a proposed rule that would revise participation goals. Such review shall thereafter be conducted at least once every two years.

                     § 2. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of small business services and the city chief procurement officer may take all actions necessary for its implementation, including the promulgation of rules, before such effective date.
