9. Questions and Answers
The HECap enabling legislation requires Grantees to voluntarily comply with the provisions of Article 15-A of the Executive Law. In accordance with this requirement, goals may be established for MWBE participation. Generally, for State contracts, a 30% MWBE participation rate is required—18% minority-owned businesses and 12% women-owned businesses. In order to demonstrate compliance with this requirement, Grantees must provide a utilization plan to DASNY for approval setting forth the contractors it plans to use in connection with the project. Alternatively, in the event that the percentage goals cannot be met, Grantees must demonstrate that they made good faith efforts to retain MWBE contractors. Please see below the documentation that will need to be completed after the grant award.
Also attached is 5 NYCRR 142.8, which provides guidance as to the steps that constitute good faith efforts.
