Governor Signs Contract Piggy-Backing Extension

On July 21, 2022, Governor Hochul signed S.8717 (Gaughran) / A.9880 (Thiele), extending the current law, which allows state and local governments to utilize contracts already awarded by other municipalities, provided that the original contract was awarded through a competitive process consistent with state procurement standards. Since its original implementation in 2013, local governments have utilized piggy-backing to reduce administrative and operational costs for thousands of purchases. This extension allows municipalities to continue this practice until June 30, 2026. (NYSASBO)
