SED Announces Additional Flexibility in Facilities Planning Outsourcing

SED has agreed to allow projects that have already been reviewed by SED architects, but still waiting to be reviewed by SED engineers to be outsourced for external review in order to expedite the process. SED recommends, however, that 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

A memo titled, “Review Process Change Memo 2” explaining this change in more detail can be found here. For additional information, visit the Office of Facilities website.
