Comptroller DiNapoli believes in empowering people to raise concerns about State contract awards. Regulations made effective January 25, 2017, establish an administrative bid protest procedure to be used when an interested party asserts to the Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) that the Comptroller should not approve a contract award by a public contracting entity. The Comptroller's independent review of bid protests, as well as state contracts, helps ensure fairness in State contracting and protects the interests of the State and its taxpayers.
The independent review of contracts is a strong deterrent to waste, fraud and abuse in contracting. Comptroller DiNapoli issues these reports on the importance of the Comptroller’s independent contract oversight to prevent procurement abuses in New York State.
The Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) is required to produce the annual Procurement Stewardship Act (PSA) Report. Pursuant to Chapter 317 of the Laws of 2014, the PSA Report now also includes data previously reported in the Office of General Services Emergency Construction Contracts Report and the Consultant Report.
