Still Running Late: An analysis of NYC Agency Contracts in Fiscal Year 2018

Today’s press conference with @NYCComptroller and @JustinBrannan We are calling for change as thousands of NYC nonprofits go unpaid for months and even years

City Comptroller Scott Stringer has a sequel to a report earlier this year detailing delays in contracts awarded to nonprofits. Still Running Late: An analysis of NYC Agency Contracts in Fiscal Year 2018 outlines an issue that has regularly vexed nonprofits that provide services such as homeless shelters, domestic violence counseling, foster care, and drug rehabilitation on behalf of the city.

Here are four key findings from the latest report, taken more or less verbatim from the report:

  • In Fiscal Year 2018, 80 percent of all new and renewal contracts arrived at the comptroller’s office for registration after their start date had already passed. When removing discretionary contracts from the analysis, that rate improved only slightly to 75 percent.
  • When examining human service contracts only, 89 percent arrived at the comptroller’s office after the contract start date. This is a higher retroactivity rate than the citywide average, suggesting that nonprofit organizations wait longer for their contracts to be submitted for registration than vendors that do business with the city overall. When removing discretionary contracts from the analysis, that rate improved only slightly to 81 percent.
  • In Fiscal Year 2018, 40 percent of new and renewal contracts arrived at the comptroller’s office a full six months or more after their start date. When removing discretionary contracts from the analysis, this report found that over 23 percent of contracts were over six months late.
  • The latest contracts are getting later. In Fiscal Year 2018, all new and renewal contracts that were submitted for registration more than a year after their start date were on average 589 days late, compared to 558 days in Fiscal Year 2017. Human services new and renewal contracts that were submitted more than one year after their start date in Fiscal Year 2018 were on average 541 days late, compared to 504 days in Fiscal Year 2017.
