Int 0300-2022 *Julie Won  Establishing a special inspector within the DOI to review contracts that were entered into in response to the 2019 novel coronavirus, and providing for the repeal of such provision upon the expiration thereof.IntroductionThis bill would require the Commissioner of Investigation to appoint a special inspector to monitor the emergency procurement contracts entered into by the city in response to COVID-19. The special inspector would report about each contract, review contracts to identify monitoring and integrity deficiencies, and make recommendations for remedying the deficiencies, all in real-time. The database would include, for each contract: (1) the contract requirements; (2) the contract’s dollar value; (3) the vendor’s type of business; (4) the vendor’s inventory of contracted goods; (5) the timeline for delivery; (6) whether the vendor previously did business with the city; (7) whether the vendor previously provided the goods or services required by the contract; and (8) assessments of whether the contractor provided the contracted goods or services to the city.   Not available Not available
Int 0301-2022 *Julie Won  Establishment of standards and procedures to determine the existence of conflicts of interest and other misconduct concerning city contracts.IntroductionThis bill would apply to a contractor and a City agency or the Council that are parties to a City contract valued in excess of $100,000. It would require the City Chief Procurement Officer (CCPO) to establish standards and procedures for a contractor to use to determine the existence of a conflict of interest and certain misconduct concerning the contract on the part of its officers or employees and those of its subcontractors. The Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS) would have to require the agency or Council as party to a contract to include such standards and procedures in the contract. The contractor would be required to submit a certification of compliance with such standards and procedures, as well as that no conflict of interest or misconduct exists, to MOCS. Finally, the bill would require the CCPO to report on certifications submitted by contractors.   Not available Not available
Int 0453-2022 *Keith Powers   Requiring officers and employees of city contractors to report corruption and to cooperate with the DOI.IntroductionThis bill would require officers and employees of City contractors and subcontractors with contracts valued in excess of $100,000 to report conflicts of interest or other wrongdoing by any officer or employee of such contractor or subcontractor that concerns City contracts to the Department of Investigation (DOI) or other City officials. The bill would clarify that the DOI and other officials are required to make reasonable efforts to protect the confidentiality of the officer or employee making the report. Additionally, officers and employees of City contractors and subcontractors with City contracts valued in excess of $100,000 would be required to cooperate with DOI investigations related to City contracts. If a contracting agency determines that there has been a violation of the reporting and cooperation requirements, the contracting agency would be required to take such action as it deems appropriate and consistent with the remedies available under the contract or subcontract.   Not available Not available
