Bid Protests

Comptroller DiNapoli believes in empowering people to raise concerns about State contract awards. Regulations made effective January 25, 2017, establish an administrative bid protest procedure to be used when an interested party asserts to the Office of the State Comptroller (OSC) that the Comptroller should not approve a contract award by a public contracting entity. The Comptroller's independent review of bid protests, as well as state contracts, helps ensure fairness in State contracting and protects the interests of the State and its taxpayers.
