The intent of this Directive provides guidance to the State University Construction Fund (Fund)’s Consultants and Contractors working on Fund Projects during the COVID-19 outbreak. Executive Order 202.6 included construction as an essential industry that must continue to operate in New York State and the Fund is continuing its operations.
The Fund directs its Consultants and Contractors to adopt best practices in conducting work on behalf of the Fund, the State University of New York (SUNY) and the State of New York to mitigate the spread of COVID -19. You and your agents, subcontractors, subconsultants and employees are required to comply with current Executive Orders, which can be found here, current New York State Department of Health (DOH) guidance on limiting the spread of COVID-19, which can be found here, and to stay up to date on DOH requirements and directives. The Fund is the point of contact through which questions regarding work on Projects must be made and information should be provided to Fund staff as set forth in this directive. The Fund will work with SUNY Campuses to address any concerns raised regarding continuation of work and possible restrictions on use of Campus facilities and such information will be provided to affected entities as it becomes available.
