The recently enacted New York State budget for Fiscal Year 2020 included an MTA reform bill with rules for debarment that will significantly impact public contractors. Earlier this year the Governor also signaled the State’s increased focus on contractor responsibility/ integrity with Executive Order 192 imposing increased contractor oversight and more extensive agency reporting requirements. It is imperative that contractors understand the changes and review/implement “Best Practices” to address issues that might arise.
