DASNY establishes MWBE and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) goals on construction projects valued at $100,000 or more. We use several types of contracts and assistance to help accomplish this goal. Our construction contracting program covers:
- Professional design contracts requiring the services of licensed architects, engineers, planners and surveyors.
- Regulated professional contracts requiring the services of individuals and firms whose practices are regulated by the State of New York.
- General consultant contracts, such as construction management, affirmative action and general business services.
- General service contracts, such as printing and janitorial services.
Job Order Contracting (JOC) Program
DASNY goes out to bid approximately twice per year and awards Job Order Contracting (JOC) contracts in six regions statewide. The five construction disciplines in all regions that we solicit services for are:
- General Construction
- Asbestos Abatement
In select regions, we also solicit for roofing and sprinkler services. Interested firms are required to attend a mandatory pre-bid meeting to learn more about the details of the program. Watch the NYS Contract Reporter or our RFP & Bid Opportunities section of our website for JOC bid opportunities.
This type of procurement is specifically designed to provide faster contracting time for projects with urgent and time sensitive requirements. JOC Contracts are entered into with contractors who are ready to perform maintenance, repair and minor construction projects on an on-call basis. Firms that have been awarded JOC with DASNY may be interested in receiving information from potential subcontractors.
Community Minor Maintenance (CMM) Opportunities
In 2011, DASNY, at the request of the New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD), developed a Community Minor Maintenance (CMM) Program to undertake smaller construction projects at OPWDD’s community residences located throughout the State of New York. CMM Program projects are typically projects with a single scope of work ranging in value from $10,000-$75,000 and generally consist of exterior work including roof replacement, driveway replacement, and renovations or replacement of exterior decks, windows, stairways, and entrances. Interior renovations such as kitchen and bathroom rehabilitation, painting and flooring replacement may also be undertaken under the CMM Program.
Work under the CMM Program may be accomplished through either a Job Order Contract (JOC) contract or a General Contractor (GC) Minor Maintenance contract. The (GC) Minor Maintenance contract method provides a more expedited contracting process and provides a more cost-effective method of managing and supervising the work.
Under the GC Minor Maintenance contracting method, a general contractor, through a competitive procurement process, is awarded a regional contract based upon an agreed upon mark-up percentage. The general contractor’s mark-up percentage covers their cost for supervising and coordinating the work as well as their overhead, profit, bonds and insurances. The general contractor applies the mark-up percentage to any sub-contractor performing work on a CMM Program project. For each project, the general contractor is required to solicit at least three quotes for the scope of work.
Under the CMM Program, each GC Minor Maintenance contract is for a term of two years and has a dollar cap of $80,000 (excluding the general contractor’s agreed upon mark-up percentage) on individual work orders. The CMM Program is organized into nine regions across the State, and the following general contractors were selected pursuant to GC Minor Maintenance contracting method for each region as set forth below.
