New legislation, effective January 1, 2013, establishes a database called "Project Sunlight," which makes data available to the public concerning individuals and firms who appear before State entities with respect to five categories of matters:
Given the nature of the College's activities, Farmingdale State College is most likely to be impacted in the area of procurement. The College is required to report appearances by individuals and firms that appear before decision-makers or persons who advise decision-makers.
The Purchasing Office and the Internal Control Office will share responsibility for reporting such appearances into the State database. In order to comply with this requirement, staff are required to supply basic information related to the appearances. A basic form capturing the required information is attached for your use. Appearances must be reported into the state database within five (5) days of their occurrence. Therefore, these offices request that you submit the required form to the Purchasing Department or Internal Control Office within three (3) days of their occurrence.
All inquiries should be submitted to Lisa Bruns (420-2245) or Dorothy Hughes (420-2166). For additional information on Project Sunlight, please visit the SUNY Project Sunlight Compliance Webpage.
