Qualified Personal Service Contracts

Executive Order No. 6 "Ensuring the Cost-Effectiveness of Contracts for Personal Services," requires state agencies to report and disclose information related to certain qualified personal service contracts and to list these contracts, and any amendments, on their websites. A Qualified Personal Services Contract is defined as any contract entered into by a state agency with any private party pursuant to State Finance Law § 163, under which: (a) the agency believes that a majority of the costs of the contract are attributable to compensation of the contractor's personnel; and (b) the agency can reasonably anticipate that it will incur costs for the compensation of personnel of $1 million or more over any twelve-month period.

Copies of the contract(s) listed below may be obtained by submitting a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request to the Department of Environmental Conservation's Records Access Officer.

CMS730G $1,787,008
CGI Technologies & Solutions, Inc.
This contract provides services for DEC's Financial Management Information System to supplement limited in-house capacity. The CGI consultants currently retained have supported this project during its development and implementation and know its complexities to the fullest extent. The advent of the Statewide Financial Management System makes it imperative that this contract continue; DEC is not in the first round of implementation and will need to be able to use the current system until the Statewide System is fully implemented. In addition, the contract scope of work includes the development of a revenue solution to invoice and account for a portion of DEC's $400 million in annual revenue, which saved $250,000 in Fiscal Year 09/10. The revenue solution is being developed to be used in conjunction with the new Statewide System.
