Such information shall be updated no less than quarterly and shall include the following:

1. For each such project, (i) the actual or estimated starting date and actual or estimated completion date of [the current] each phase of such project, and if any phase is delayed, a description of such delay and the cause thereof; (ii) the total amount of funds allocated to such project or, when applicable, a range of the funds available; (iii) the identification of each separate source of funding allocated to such project; (iv) a description of such project; (v) the location of such project, specified by borough, council district and community district; [and] (vi) [a quarterly update] the date when funding for such project was fully allocated; (vii) any addition or subtraction made to the funding allocation for such project after such date and the reasons for such addition or subtraction; (viii) the date such project is first assigned to an employee of the department; and (ix) a description of any projected or actual cost overrun for each phase of such project; and

2. The total number of capital projects that were completed during the most recent fiscal year and the average amount of time taken to complete such projects, measured from the date when each project was fully funded to the date construction was completed; and

3. The total number of capital projects currently under the jurisdiction of the department.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 180 days after it becomes law.
