A02580 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A2580
 
SPONSOR: Thiele
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 308 of the laws of 2012, amending the general municipal law relating to providing local governments greater contract flexibility and cost savings by permitting certain shared purchasing among political subdivisions, in relation to the effectiveness thereof   PURPOSE: Extends the expiration of certain provisions of general municipal law, relating to granting localities greater contract flexibility to author- ize shared purchasing.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Section 2 of chapter 308 of the laws of 2012 amends the general municipal law relating to providing local governments greater contract flexibility and cost savings by permitting certain shared purchasing among political subdivisions. Section 2. Extends the date to July 31, 2023.   JUSTIFICATION: This bill would extend the authority, until July 31, 2023, of New York State municipalities, school districts, and other local governmental entities to purchase from federal and other states' contracts for goods or services that were competitively bid, as provided in General Munici- pal Law § 103(16). Cooperative purchasing, also commonly referred to as "piggy-backing," is a procurement method whereby if a government agency has already awarded a contract to one or more vendors for a good or service through a competitive process consistent with the procurement standards in New York State statute, the contract can be utilized by other government agencies on the same terms and conditions. Piggy-backing has been proven to reduce the administrative costs and burdens by localities and the costs related to goods and services; resulting in savings to the governmental entities which utilize cooper- ative purchasing. Accordingly, since cooperative purchasing was author- ized in 2013, thousands of political subdivisions throughout New York State have used piggyback contracts for thousands of purchases and have used the resulting savings to reduce the cost-pressures on their budgets and taxpayers. If this bill is not approved, the authority to realize these savings and efficiencies will expire on July 31, 2021. Extending this statute a year before its sunset date will allow local governments to continue to use cooperative purchasing and avoid the need to contingently prepare a request for proposal for goods or services in the event the statute is not extended beyond its expiration date.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2020: S7933/A10139   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
