Subcontractor Approval Policy

All SMIP grant 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.

A one-page form must be sub­mit­ted to New York City. CCEUC will assist the SMIP recip­i­ent with obtain­ing the appro­pri­ate forms.

New York City Sub­con­trac­tor Approval must be obtained for sub­con­trac­tors to CCEUC in excess of $20,000. SMIP grant recip­i­ents are exempt from this requirement.
