LEVEL 1 REVIEWS SUSPENDED

  • In anticipation of disruption caused by our office move and the start of third-party vendor review of project submissions beginning in February 2018, as of Friday, December 22nd, 2017 we will no longer be accepting requests for Level 1 Reviews.  If you have an urgent issue (emergency, grant deadline, etc.), please contact your SED project manager to request an expedited review.  Please see this link for a list of SED project managers.

THIRD-PARTY VENDOR REVIEW OF PROJECT SUBMISSIONS

  • NewPROCESS UPDATE: Several superintendents who had projects that had been reviewed by our architects, but were still awaiting review by our engineers, have asked us if they could outsource projects that have received partial NYSED review to ensure build-readiness for critical summer work.   We have made the determination to accommodate these requests. However, when determining whether a partial review is a good business decision for your district, you should be aware that the costs of these reviews will be calculated at the same aggregate project total level as for the full review.   If your district has a project that has received partial review, and you wish to request outsourcing – you can use the outsourcing email address to do so: thirdpartyreview@nysed.gov. (01/31/18)
  • The Office of Facilities Planning in conjunction with CiTi BOCES (the Center for Instruction, Technology and Innovation/Oswego BOCES) will implement outsourcing of eligible capital project submissions to third-party vendors beginning February 1st, 2018.
  • Districts will be able to choose whether their projects will receive review by NYSED staff, or whether their projects will be reviewed for an additional fee by third-party vendors retained by CiTi BOCES.
  • Please see this page for more information about the third-party project review process and how to request a third-party review for your project submission.
