Qualified Personal Service Contracts (QPSC) Listing

On June 4, 2008, Governor Paterson issued Executive Order No. 6: Ensuring the Cost-Effectiveness of Contracts for Personal Services. Executive Order No. 6 requires that agencies report information regarding Qualified Personal Services Contracts (QPSCs) to a Task Force and on their agencies' websites. A QPSC is any new, renewed, or amended State agency contract with any non-State entity pursuant to State Finance Law §163 or §136-A, under which:

  1. The contract was approved on or after August 4, 2008;
  2. The agency believes that a majority of the costs of the contract are attributable to compensation of the contractor's personnel; and
  3. The agency can reasonably anticipate it will incur costs for the personal service component of $1 million or more over any twelve-month period.

Copies of these contracts may be obtained by submitting a Freedom Of Information Law request to:

  • Records Access Office
