January Contract Cycle

As you know, for the past three years, NYSCA has been moving to a January contract cycle as July contracts expire to comply with New York State procurement regulations. To date, approximately 75% of NYSCA grantees have made this transition. To this end, all new contracts will continue to be issued on a January 1st – December 31st contract cycle.  Once this transition is complete, NYSCA will be primed to more efficiently review applications and consistently execute on-time contracts in accordance with prompt contracting guidelines.
