Subcontractor Approval Policy

All SMIP recip­i­ents except munic­i­pal­i­ties must be approved by the City of New York before con­tract work can com­mence. The SMIP is funded by New York City through an agree­ment with Cor­nell Coop­er­a­tive Exten­sion of Ulster County (CCEUC). New York City reserves the right to deter­mine if the SMIP recip­i­ent is a legit­i­mate busi­ness or non-profit orga­ni­za­tion in good standing.

New York City Sub­con­trac­tor Approval must also be obtained for sub­con­trac­tors of the SMIP recip­i­ent. Excep­tions are for con­tracts to pur­chase mate­ri­als. Sub­con­trac­tor approval may not be required for first-time con­trac­tors with projects under $5,000.

Sev­eral forms must be sub­mit­ted to New York City. CCEUC will assist the SMIP recip­i­ent with obtain­ing the appro­pri­ate forms.
