Int 1449-2019 *Justin L. Brannan~SPONSORSmall BusinessProvision of bridge loans to contractors.IntroductionDue to a slow procurement process, many entities that enter into contracts with city agencies begin to provide services before the agency can pay them. This can make it difficult for contractors to cover their expenses. This bill would require that certain not-for-profit corporations that contract with the Department of Small Business Services to provide economic development services for New York City provide bridge loans to contractors who have contracts with the City that are valued at no more than $500,000 and who are not receiving payments from the City in a timely manner.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
Int 1450-2019 *Justin L. Brannan~SPONSORContractsInterest to be paid on late contract payments to non-profit contractors.IntroductionDue to a slow procurement process, many entities that enter into contracts with city agencies begin to provide services before the agency can pay them. This can make it difficult for contractors, particularly non-profit contractors, to cover their expenses. This bill would require interest to be paid on late payments under city contracts with non-profit organizations. The non-profit contractor would not be eligible to receive the interest if the non-profit contractor has received a no-interest and no-service-fee loan issued or authorized by a city agency to cover its expenses in relation to the subject contract.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

The bill would also empower agency chief contracting officers to require contracting agencies to identify MBE, WBE or EBEs that such agencies intend to employ for certain contracts. Lastly, the bill would enable the chief procurement officer to exempt portions of certain contracts from the M/WBE program in instances where, after an exhaustive search by a contracting agency, it is determined that there are no eligible MBE, WBE or EBE firms eligible to perform the work required.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

DPR will also be required to provide notice to the homeowner whose property abuts the sidewalk in question which sidewalk flag it intends to repair. DPR and the Department of Transportation (“DOT”) would be required to maintain a database of planned sidewalk repairs. DOT would be required to verify whether a sidewalk flag is enrolled in the TSP before issuing a notice of violation.
